I was so encouraged by the way my last pen went down that I have decided to open my Folksy shop again. I'm not seeking to make bundles of money, but it would be nice to be able to use the money from any sales to buy more pen kits. In other words, if I can make my pen turning and pyrography hobby self-financing it would be great.
The thing is, having made the decision to open a shop again on Folksy I have had to get my pyrography iron out and start burning. I have three pens to show you and here is the first. It is a gold plated twist action pen upon which I have burnt a reedmace design.
On my next pen I used my pyrography iron to burn a weave pattern which I think is very effective.
My shop is called Sam's Pens and can be found on folksy.com
In my next post I will explain more about the pyrography and how I approach burning images onto the very small area of a pen.
