So, I have updated the website with all of my new jewelry. As you can see to the left, they are uniquely made with automotive retaining rings and real Swarovsky crystals. They are quality pieces that will never be reproduced, so everyone can have “just for you” jewelry by creating a custom order through Burned Images. Head on over to Burned Images’ website to create your own order and see all of the other jewelry I have up.
Alright, here it is! I started and finished a horse burn and it turned out pretty awesome if I do say so myself, and I do. I really want a laser right now because I would be able to duplicate that in 5 minutes instead of 7 and a half hours with much less frustration. Ugh… Anyways. I also started a new piece, a wood duck. With this one I think I’m going to just shade it with the woodburner and then paint it with watercolors so it keeps the color the duck has. Oh, and I painted the cardinal spoon that I burned and it looked really nice, will hopefully get a pic of that up soon too. I’m willing to take any suggestions on what to burn next. I’m really not that imaginative, so give me some ideas, otherwise I just poke around on the internet until I can come up with something, and that’s never fun to do. Next time…
Two new finished products! To the right there is the roper silhouette I was working on earlier, and to the left is the newest of the bird spoons that I’ve been doing, the Chickadee. Right now I’m working on the Blue Jay spoon, and a picture frame with a male and female quail on it. The quail are pretty detailed and are turning out pretty well, so I’ll let you know when that’s done. Yay for all the work!
Ya know, I’ve set all of the stuff I have done out on the table and realized there’s a ton of time sitting on the table, but not much to show for it. Why do I have to be such a perfectionist? Why can’t I just say something is “good enough” and call it done? I’m usually not that happy with the finished product anyways, so why do I care so much? Bleh, more work tomorrow. Night.
So this is my newest endeavor, a sillhouette of a horse in the dust. You can see it on the right, click on it to make it bigger, yadda yadda yadda. I think it’s turning out rather well because the dust doesn’t look completely fake and somewhat real. I really thought there was more to this picture when I first started it but now that I’m a little further along on it, I’ve realized there isn’t too much left to be done. I’ve gotten started on the background and it’s looking pretty good, I think it should turn out really well. I will post a final picture when it’s done, should be soon.
I was concerned that there wouldn’t be enough definition between the two feathers, but I think with the small border I left unburned and the dark shadows on the lower feather, I think they turned out okay. I haven’t burned on this new wood yet, so I was surprised to find how easy it was to burn, which actually makes things difficult when you are trying to burn fine details and can’t change the temperature of your burning tip. I think they turned out nicely and I think they will be happy to see it.
Let me know what you think!!
Burned Images will hopefully be attending the western Silver, Saddle, and Song event at Brasada Ranch!
If everything goes well, we will have our own booth and be selling our work at this awesome show. We will keep updating on our status of the show, but we are really looking forward to our first show!! So excited!
It’s a new year and Burned Images is still working hard. Our resolutions are definately apparent and have been more like goals in this past year. We are going to become a corporation and get a business account so that we can get a loan and a laser engraver. It doesn’t really sound like a lot, but for us working at Burned Images, it will mean we can expand our product line and start making more money. Which is the point of a business. We appreciate all of the business we have gotten so far and we hope to please more customers in this coming year. Wishing everyone a great new year!
