I’ve done as much as I’d planned to do with the wood burning on this box, but my intitial plan included some wood carving with a Dremel tool as well. I’ve since discovered that the top and bottom panels of this box are too thin to take much carving, so I’ve decided to do a bit on the sides of the box instead, which measure about 8mm in thickness. I’m now in the process of coming up with a complimentary design for the sides of the box.
Here’s my progress on the box so far:

For the past little while I’ve been eager to implement one of my designs for wood burning/ wood carving. I’ve had an unfinished, flat wooden box hanging around for a long time, and being square, it seemed perfect for the design I posted on the blog on March 2.
I transfered a pencil copy of the design to the top of the wooden box and then started work on the shaded sections using wood burning. At first I filled in the shapes that had solid colour, and in the process found that the chisel tip I was using with my wood burning tool did a pretty decent job for areas of shading gradation as well.
Here is my work in progress:

Today’s gesture drawing from life was hampered by rain, so here are a few of my favourites from the 30-second online references I used instead:

Today I needed to get outside and enjoy the nice weather, so I went to sketch a few gestures:

I thought I’d try my hand at a few more caricatures today for practice:

Today I made a reuseable cutlery pack to keep in my purse/ bag for when I eat at fast-food restaurants. There are a lot of designs for these packs out there, but I liked the ones that left room for reuseable or recyclable paper straws and a fabric napkin, so I adapted mine to fit those items.

For durability I used a double layer of fabric, sewed the edges together, turned it, then sewed the open end last. To make the pocket, I turned up one end and sewed individual slots to fit each piece of cutlery and a napkin. I intend to roll this pack up and secure it with a tie, but I need to get some ribbon or cord for that. Sewing in snaps or a button would also work well to close the pack.

Here I’m reusing compostable cutlery that I picked up at Noodle Box during my last trip. That will suffice until I can get my hands on a more permanent, reusable solution like wood or a recyclable plastic.
