5 Awesome Things You Can Do with a Wood Burning Marker

  • 3 min read

Navigating the world of wood burning tools, tips, and materials, especially as a beginner, can feel confusing.

There are lots of different techniques to understand and rules to follow which, for someone who’s just looking for a hobby, might seem like more than it’s worth.

It doesn’t have to be this way though, especially not with the availability of a wood burning marker.

The Scorch Marker takes the complexity of wood burning and puts it into the simplicity of drawing with a marker.

It requires no special tips, no safety training, and is easy enough for a child to use.

In this article, we’re taking a look at five excellent ways you can get creative with the Scorch Marker today.

Non-Toxic Chemical Wood Burning

The great thing about the Scorch Marker is that the liquid inside is completely non-toxic, making it safe to burn indoors, with kids, and on cooking utensils.

It’s actually heat-activated and, when the heat gun is applied, burns into the wood itself.

It literally is wood burning in a marker.

The Possibilities are Endless with the Scorch Marker

While traditional wood burning is limited to firm surfaces, like wood and gourds, the Scorch Marker opens the possibilities significantly.

In fact, with the wood burning marker, you’re allowed the freedom to burn custom images and designs onto surfaces like cardboard, paper, and even denim!

Another huge advantage of chemical wood burning is that it is completely permanent, because the reaction causes the surface layer to burn.

The possibilities are truly endless.

Some of the most awesome ways to use the Scorch Marker are to:

Customize Kitchen Utensils

As mentioned above, the Scorch Marker leaves no harmful residue and is totally safe to use on kitchen utensils.

Some of the most popular kitchen items used for wood burning are wooden spoons and spatulas, cutting boards, and serving trays.

Personalize Jeans


Unlike traditional pyrography, chemical wood burning allows you to bring some life to your denim.

Add designs, and then burn with a heat gun (because a torch will burn fabric!) for permanent creations that will outlast your wash routine.

Design Holiday Decor

Whether you want to create your own Christmas tree ornaments with sourwood rounds, or going all out with a farmhouse sign, Scorch Marker is available for all your holiday craft needs.

It really is a wonderful product to enjoy with the entire family.

Occupy The Kids

The most standout way that the wood burning marker differs from traditional pyrography is that heat isn’t applied until after the design has been finished.

This makes the Scorch Marker the ideal tool for use with kids.

Little ones can imagine, draw, and color to their heart’s content and then watch in awe as their create comes to life while you apply the heat.

Decorate Your Home

There is endless opportunity for fun with the Scorch Marker, which was designed for use on a wide variety of different surfaces.

Wooden furniture, holiday wreaths, and picture frames are all ideas for experimenting with your Scorch Marker to bring life into your home.

The Scorch Marker is the ultimate tool, and not only for the beginner. It can be used in a variety of ways to serve multiple different purposes. It truly is a versatile tool that brings more flexibility and creativity into your life.
