*Upgrade Item*: Add a little color to your next game board with this color enhancement option! Pyrography, the art of wood-burning, is a beautiful art form, capable of deep rich sepia tones permanently burned into the surface of the wood; but further augmentation of that artwork with color creates a piece that can be truly eye-catching and beautiful. A great way to expand the look of a game and further it's uniqueness!
This is a MADE TO ORDER Upgrade Item; the pictures shown are of past orders unto which different mediums of color have been applied.
- Color accents to the pyrographed artwork around the border of any IGNITED Arts' game board. Medium used, whether stain, watercolor pencil, or acrylic paint, is dictated by the wood type of the board and artist's discretion (as some mediums will not work with certain woods, such as watercolor on walnut).
- Customers may select 1-4 colors used, and whether they wish Light, Medium, or Heavy levels of color enhancement. Light enhancement would be only minor details within the artwork being given color; Medium enhancement is a good balance between the pyrography and color, and Heavy enhancement will have an equal visual 'weight' to the wood-burned artwork or possibly even overmatch it. All of these levels are dependent upon the design as well.
- Color placement and selection is typically at the discretion of the artist, but requested placement and colors is possible! Please message me after ordering with your requests, so that I can ensure not to burn an area you may wish colored!
- In all cases, wood texture and hue will somewhat affect the color applied. For paler, tighter grain woods, the colors will be brighter; for darker or spread grain woods, the colors will be very evident, but muted or 'aged' in appearance.
Products used: I use Saman brand wood stains, Derwent watercolor pencils, and Citadel acrylic paints for all of my board enhancements. In some cases, I may utilize combinations of mediums to achieve the desired results.
ORDERING: Place this optional upgrade item into the virtual cart along with your hnefatafl board order for an easy check-out, after selecting your desired options with the drop-down selectors. If any further customization requests are desired, leave those instructions in the "Note To Seller" box, and follow up with a direct message after purchase so that I may notate the order for production.
Adding this item will not greatly increase production time for a board order - 3 to 7 days extra, according to my current work load and the amount of augmentation applied.
