It was my birthday yesterday, so I never got around to posting about the letter X. So I'm posting about X now, and then Y a little later today. No biggie, right? :)
X is for: Xylopyrography
I'll tell you what xylopyrography is and what it is not. It is not the act of setting fire to xylophones. (I know. Disappointing. . . ) Xylopyrography is a fancy word for wood burning. It originated as making larger scale art with an actual hot poker, but it has evolved into the smaller, more practical version of wood burning you see today.
