Product Description

Woodburning with Style - Pyrography Lessons and Projects with a Modern Flair

This is not your grandmother’s craft. It’s Simon Easton’s brand of woodburning. Hip. Edgy. Modern. He’s transformed a classic craft into an art form that expresses contemporary style. The beautifully-photographed guide teaches readers how to draw with fire – otherwise known as the art of pyrography, or woodburning. Using a simple tool that’s a cross between a pencil and a curling iron, even new crafters can easily decorate any wooden surface. They’ll learn how to make basic marks, like wavy lines and dots, and how shading and repetition creates richly textured patterns. The author examines the methods for burning tribal and celtic designs, animal prints like zebra and leopard, as well as delicate floral and leaf motifs. Easton calls his creations “wood tattoos,” because each finished piece has a distinctive story to tell. The end result is cool – the kind of decorative items you’d be proud to display on a mantel, hang on a wall, or give as a personalised gift. Projects include instructions for making funky bangle bracelets, a beautiful wall clock and the kind of decorated plate you’d find for sale in a high-end boutique. Other projects include easy-to-make coasters and key rings, a door sign and more. Easton also inspires readers to create their own personal touch. The photos of his gorgeous work are enough to make anyone want to try their hand at this surprisingly easy craft.
