Finished my Celtic lion design the other night and I'm very pleased with how it turned out. Not bad for my first woodburning project!
I switched from a tapered point for the fine details to a flow point to darken the larger areas of the design. I'd like to add some sort of border, I think-- some Celtic knotwork? But the lion design comes so close to the edge in a couple of places, it would have to be quite a small and simple knot. Have to think on that.
If I don't find anything that would work, no matter. I'm just as happy with it the way it looks right now. And I enjoyed the project so much, I'm already contemplating ways that I can incorporate woodburning in to some of my future projects.
