(Prices are in Canadian Dollars)
"What type of wood do you use?"
Kiln dried Basswood, Maple, Birch, Poplar all work well for wood burning. I generally use Basswood round cuts varying in size from 1.5" for necklace pendants to 11" wall mount plaques. 7"-9" basswood cuts are the most popular for portraits.
"What can I have wood burned?
I am comfortable with wood burning pet portraits, human portraits, wild animals, and text
"How long does it take?"
All wood burns are done completely by hand. On average a portrait will take approx. 40 hours to create. I would prefer you provide me with the image you want burned 1 month prior to the time you need it done by.
"Do you use laser engraving?"
No! All wood burns are done completely by hand with a heated tool that is similar to a pen.
"Is there a sort of picture that works best?"
Yes, a clear non-fuzzy picture with lots of contrast will give the best results. The more clear details I can see in the picture, the better the outcome will be.
"Can I have more than one person in the picture?"
Yes. However, keep in mind the more people you have in a picture, the smaller the working area becomes and less details are able to be put in. Its generally best to work with one subject in the picture.
"What if I don't have a clear picture, do you provide photography?"
Yes, I am able to provide photography for an additional cost.
"How do you accept payment?"
Cash, E-mail Money Transfer, PayPal, Bank Draft, Certified Cheque. If you are local to Calgary, I can accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discovery. You need to be present to authorize the credit card transaction.
"Is shipping included in the price?"
Shipping is quoted on an individual basis and separate from the cost of the wood burn.
