What is Scorch Marker and How Does it Work?
The original problem with wood burning was the safety aspect of holding a actual wood burning item while trying to steady your hand and create the exact design you want.
So we invented a non-toxic formula that burns wood when heat is applied!
Scorch Marker is a wood-burning craft marker that does just that! It's a marker that contains our unique heat-activated liquid!
Make Sure to Gather Supplies and Prepare the Surface
With its unique formula, these markers allow you to create intricate designs on wood, leather, and other surfaces with ease. But before you start creating your patriotic crafts, it's essential to prepare the surface properly. Make sure to sand down any rough spots and wipe the surface clean with a damp cloth. This will ensure that your designs come out clean and crisp.
We created the Scorch Marker Sanding Kit that includes five different grits and a ergonomic handle that makes it easier to sand your wood pieces!
Now that you have your wood piece or other surface you're using ready to go, what should you make?
Whether you're starting with a smaller wood piece or larger working area, you can create a truly unique and custom patriotic craft!
