[Buy Live Edge Wood Wall Art now in my shop!]
I’ve always created live edge wood tables with fractal burning and epoxy resin, but then it occurred to me that smaller pieces would also look fabulous as wall, mantle or shelf art!
In the summer of 2020, my husband and I built a Lichtenberg Wood Burning Tool, also called fractal burning. Fractal burning occurs when a conductive solution is applied to the wood and then electricity is introduced via 2 electrodes wired from a transformer (microwave). As the current tries to connect, the high voltage burns river like patterns into the wood.
I always look for uniquely shaped wood for my one-of-a-kind live Edge Wood Wall Art. Depending on the wood type, wood grain and color, sometimes I add epoxy resin, sometimes I leave just the fractal burning patterns.
