3. Place the backwards trace-side down onto the burnable surface and scribble over the top of the tracing paper to transfer your design.
4. Heat up the pyrography tool for 7-10 minutes and begin to burn the design, holding the tool by the red handle. To successfully burn the design, move slowly with even pressure.
