A wood burning kit consists of a wood burning pen, carbon paper, tape, sandpaper, wet paper towel and the material or artwork that you want to burn.

It’s a device which has a removable tip which transfers heat from the pen to the artwork. With any kit, 5-7 different pen tips are available for various burning methods: shading, rounded lines, straight lines etc. A kit will usually also contains a metal safety stand to place the pen when you’re not using it.
