If you have an image you’d like to see burnt into wood send me a JPEG (the higher the resolution and quality the better). If you’re in the Edmonton area we can also arrange a face to face consultation.
I can also create an original composition based on a subject of your choice (eg. Salmon swimming up stream, mountain climber, motorcycle).
Burn your furniture?
Yes I can! While harder timbers can be a challenge, virtually any untreated wood is suitable for pyrography. Feel free to inquire about having me burn images, custom designs, logos or incriptions into your favourite rocking chair, mantle, bannister or what have you.
Once I’ve had a look at your image and/or we’ve discussed other requirements such as subject matter, compositions, inscriptions and design elements I’ll provide you a price estimate.
If the price is too your liking, I’ll sketch up a sample of what your piece will look like (a deposit may be required).
When the sketch is approved I’ll proceed with the burning. Substantial changes to my proposed composition may result in a revised estimate. I’ll be very upfront about this.
After the burning is complete, three coats of Minwax polycrylic protective finish will be applied to protect your art from light and add some nice gloss.
Prices can start at $100. Size, detail and composition will effect the final cost.
Delivery charges for out of towners will be added (size,weight and priority will dictate the cost).
I generally require 3 – 4 weeks to turn around a project (you never know when other committments, not to mention the day job, will come up).
Christmas season can be a busy time so please contact me early if you’re looking for an original created as a gift.
