Music Box and Pyrography
This is a music box, built by Ed. He made it out of a nice clear wood, Aspen. It had a surface like a white canvas. He handed it over to me, so I could attempt some wood burning, again. This time I went wild, and really "dolled" it up!
It measures 28" x 10 1/2" x 3 1/4". It's a 4 string, and plays beautifully.
This music box was soooo...over the top, decorated, that I decided to call it "Gypsy." The process of burning into the surface took about 10 hours all together. I kept track of my time, over several days, as the wood burning tool is different then a regular pencil. After awhile, the hand begins to cramp up, and I need a breath of fresh air! Pyrography is an interesting art process, and I hope to explore some more adventures.
Keep the Home Fires Burning People!! It makes for toasty toes.......Audrey
