Buckskin Pyrography

Experience the Timeless Beauty of Buckskin Pyrography!

Dating back thousands of years, traditional buckskin remains a cherished material for its luxurious texture and high quality. Each piece is uniquely handcrafted using primitive techniques, resulting in a stunning 3D effect that makes the artwork truly pop. To fully showcase this effect, oblique lighting is recommended to create depth and shadows.

As part of the tanning process, traditional buckskin is smoked to make it water-resistant and give it its trademark color, ranging from light yellows to dark browns. This can result in a smoky aroma that many people find enjoyable, reminiscent of a warm campfire.

Please note that your artwork may carry a mild smoky scent. To minimize this, we recommend framing it in glass, not only to reduce the smell but also to protect it and ensure its longevity. Bring the timeless beauty of buckskin pyrography to your home today.
