Well. Here are the results. Thanks for your help. I think I've found my groove.
Here's the first one. I burned too many times, too gently, and didn't carve deep enough:
Here's the second ones, being laid out:
Here's me getting ready to have at it, while wearing my best mustache and Ed Roth Helmet:
First burn. Can't be afraid to have at it. And stop if it catches fire. Blow it out. Continue.
After the first burn. Make sure the wood cracks.
Brushed very hard, sideways with the brush, with the grain.
Second burn. After vacuuming. Lost some detail on the thin spots, no biggie.
Final product, brushed gently, vacuumed. Waiting to have a finish applied. I'm not sure if I'm going to spray, or varnish, or what.
Thanks again for your help ATP. More photos to follow.
