My Small Rocking Chair with Pyrography is now COMPLETE!

My Small Rocking Chair with Pyrography is now COMPLETE! June 25, 2015

I began doing the pyrography work on this small rocking chair on May 5, 2015 - 51 days ago.

I didn't work on it everyday but I did put 62 hours of intense design and burning!  It has been a work of love and will be handed down in our family over the years to come.

Value?  Working at $20 per hour = $1240.... which is why it would never sell

I place the photos here first and then will publish them to Misty Hollow Facebook Pages and finally to Pinterest.

Yes you are welcome to copy and print the photos as you like. Simply "Right Click" on the photo and then "Save As" to your computer or Flash Drive/Memory Stick.

My contact information is below if you needed further information.  I would love to hear from you!

Part Two - My NEW Pyrography - on a Child-size Rocking Chair

Part Two - My NEW Pyrography - on a Child-size Rocking Chair - May 31, 2015

Here is my second posting on the progress of my Child-size Rocking Chair... doing the back of the chair.

First I laid out the design, distributing the Flower Designs evenly but with a variety shown.  Spacing for me is important as well as the designs are placed on the wood. BTW this is done by using a simple graphite pencil with fine lines making it easier to erase if I wish to remove my lines.

I have taken shots to show you how the work progresses.

As to the fumes and smoke that is produced I have a small fan blowing away from the work... taking the smoke away.  Blowing away also helps to not reduce the heat produced at the tip of my burning tool.

Take a look....



Next series of photos show the step by step progress as the burning continued.

I should have timed myself... but I do watch TV and when good parts of the program come on I stop burning... 

Step by Step... the first photo are of the upside down design... which I did to make it easier to reach the burning area.










Beginning the second back support - the lower one - still in upside down position







Next shots are right-side up...

"Adults Color" ideas have been added to Misty Hollow Fairies and Misty Hollow Carving

Adults Color - Misty Hollow Fairies - May 18, 2015
For a number of years now I have been producing images for the Digital Image World/Market.  Taking some of my own images and adding color I came up with the following pieces.

Today I am demonstrating the fun of coloring with simple Pencil Crayons (Crayola Pencil Crayons actually - the simple ones).

I would imagine that all of us started our the experimentation with coloring when we were young.  It kept the kids busy for hours.  Think about it for a moment... weren't those happy moments doing whatever you wanted to do with the page in your coloring book?

When did you stop coloring?  Was it when someone told you that was kid's stuff to do?  Was it when we became real busy trying to do what school wanted us to do?  Was it when we lost our childhood maybe...?

Why not start again?  By doing an image search on Google with something as simple as "Adults Color" - hundreds of images appear for you to select from. Some are very complicated and very intricate.

Enjoy...
Murray Lincoln from "Misty Hollow"

Discovering Steam Punk in Pyrography – on the Larger Wooden Shoe - March 18 2015


Discovering Steam Punk in Pyrography – on the Larger Wooden Shoe - March 18 2015

Having discovered the fun of #Steam Punk and #Pyrography plus working on the unusual “canvas” of a Wooden Shoe from #Holland here is my latest piece of art.

I just completed my latest Pyrography work on a larger wooden shoe - in Steam Punk Style, looking inside and outside. The left side of the shoe is Steam Punk and the right side the garden side (outside). Nope you likely don't get it but Steam Punkers likely will.

The delight I find in the Steam Punk style is the “what if” of the design.  What if – there was no electricity? What if you looked inside a wooden shoe?  What if it was powered by Steam instead of Electricity and Electronics – the way that everything else is now?  What if there was a world that was not like ours and it was old but new with new ideas?

Steam Punk is fun and pensive at the same time. It is the impossible mixed with possibilities if your imagination is young enough to see what is there.

ENJOY with me Steam Punk!
