sealing bark

As a pyrographer(woodburner) I seal the edges of my basswood round slabs with a product called MODGE PODGE which can be bought at craft stores or you can seal it with a 2 part epoxy that you can get at woodworking stores.

Done with a hot poker or a laser?

Looks very good.

John this is done with a special pen that can heat up to 2000 degrees.
The pen plugs into a regulator unit. See the site below.

Very interesting site, I have a soldering kit which looks similar, but as I am not an artist, I will have to pass on this one and just admire your work.
