Woodwork is a wonderful skill to have. I like the detail you put into the butterfly. It's got grace and elegance. On a scale of 1-10 how hard is wood burning and what's the best thing about it?

cocolongo responds:

Depends what you consider to be a 10, but it is harder than tattoo and trickier than watercolors, you cannot undo something... once is burnt , or sand everything and start again. precision is important. but patience is the most . I ´d give it a good 6 or 7... ish the best is probably the sense of uniqueness a piece can give you, you cannot replicate it , it could be similar but not really , there are differences in the grain of the wood, and the "hand" that makes it, the cost is higher than a watercolor, of course, given the hours to work on the piece, normally would get you between 800 to 1000 euros per piece if you are on the cheap side of it.

So detail! Love how you did the shad and lighting of it too.

cocolongo responds:

Thank you! I am glad you liked it.

The complexity of it looks really nice, it has a lot of depth and layers that make it look wonderful/

cocolongo responds:

Thank you my friend.
