Day by day-
It's been taking longer than usual because the piece of wood I'm using is giving me problems. Different wood burns different ways. This one is a round log-cut basswood. The grain in the wood goes circular and that circular pattern causes the wood to burn differently in different sections. I could be going over adding a layer at one temperature and get to a point where that temp isn't hot enough and I have to adjust, but I have to be careful not to go too far where the new temp will be too hot.
The burning I'm doing is of a naked guy and I have two spots like that on this piece and they're on both his legs. I should have been done a week ago.
But it's okay, it's been relaxing. Just getting through day by day.
Still going back and forth with what I'm going to do with the Y/A series. Some tell me not to change a thing.
