Special Craft Techniques

Pyrography

Pyrography is one of the traditional techniques used by Polmac (UK) Ltd to provide special, decorative features, motifs and effects on wooden boxes and as a base for other decorations.

Our craftsmen use an electric powered, hand held pyrographic tool to burn patterns and decorative shapes onto wood, to create visually stunning and original effects that are then over painted with natural wood and colour stains and / or block colours.

Metal Strip Inlay

This is a technique that uses thin gauge, corrugated or plain brass or nickel plated metal strips as lines to create patterns, decorative motifs and borders.

A narrow groove is cut into the wood and the metal strips tapped in, flush with the surface of the wood. Any raised edges of the metal strips are then sanded off, on a special sanding machine, to provide a flush, even finish.

Hand Carving

Traditional hand carving techniques are used to create textured areas, motifs and patterns on the surface of the wood, using special hand carving tools.
