How to Wood Burn Without a Wood Burning Tool

  • 3 min read

There are many tools out there for drawing, lettering, and decorating on wood.

Lots of them, like paintbrushes or markers, are relatively easy to use.

Others, however, like a traditional wood-burning tool, can be extremely difficult and hazardous to work with.

This is discouraging for those who might be new to the craft because an expensive and finicky new hobby isn’t something that everyone can do.

The wood-burned look is something that everyone can achieve, though, thanks to the Scorch Marker.

Scorch Marker Makes Wood Burning Crafts Easy for the Beginner

In this article, we’re talking about a new way for the wood-burning beginner to enjoy the hobby without the associated dangers.

In fact, the Scorch Marker takes all the fun and beauty of pyrography and packs it into one simple, easy-to-use marker.

All that’s required is a wood surface and heat gun, and you’re good to go!

This tool is even easy enough to use on live TV! See us in action on Good Day PA.

Enjoy Two Separate Tips for More Versatility

Like a traditional wood-burning tool, several different lines and styles can be achieved with the Scorch Marker.

This is made possible through two separate tips that are included in the marker, and the fact that you can use it with any stencil of your choice. 

The bullet-style marker tip is the one most commonly used.

It works in the exact same way as a paint marker, where you prime the nib before drawing.

This tip allows you the same control as drawing or coloring and is perfect for hand lettering or freehand creating. 

The foam tip works like a paintbrush.

It is removed completely when in use, and the marker itself acts as the ink well.

The foam tip is wonderful for filling in large areas and painting stencils. 

Scorch Marker Looks Like Magic but is Proven by Science

Once you decide on your tip and fill in your design, it’s time for the fun part.

Scorch Marker is so fun because you’re able to witness science happen right before your eyes.

It looks like magic, but a chemical reaction is actually taking place underneath the heat gun which is causing a slight burn into the wood. 

The key here is heat and the right heat.

We recommend an open-flame torch or a heat gun that is at least 1500-watts.

This creates a burn into the wood that is deep enough to be permanent, but shallow enough for mistakes to be sanded away.

And, while the designs are meant to last forever, time and traffic can cause wear. That’s why we recommend sealing your work for a professional touch. 

Kids Enjoy Getting in on Creating Wood Burning Crafts

The great thing about the Scorch Marker is that it really is completely safe.

It’s a wonderful tool for the entire family to use due to its non-toxic nature and friendly approach.

Heat isn’t required until the end, so kids can enjoy crafting and creating for hours before a parent is required. 

The Scorch Marker can be used to create so many different crafts, including wooden coasters and buttons, signs, wreaths, and so much more.

It is the best tool for the beginner and crafting expert, alike.
