Propp­matt chop­ping board, £2.75, Ikea Py­rog­ra­phy tool with stand, £28.99, Hob­by­craft Pen­cil & rub­ber

Give the sur­face of the chop­ping board a rub down with a dry cloth to re­move any dirt. Se­lect your cho­sen nib and at­tach it to the end of the py­rog­ra­phy tool be­fore plug­ging it in and leav­ing to heat up. Be sure not to touch it while it’s plugged in. Lightly mark your cho­sen de­sign onto the sur­face of the chop­ping board us­ing a pen­cil if needed and then use the heated tool to burn on the de­sign. Rub out any re­main­ing pen­cil marks, if vis­i­ble. We found that us­ing the tool to dent dots or make short lines was a sim­ple tech­nique to get you started. Later, as you build up your con­fi­dence, you may want to try out some more am­bi­tious de­signs.
