Learning the Art of Pyrography

The art of pyrography -- burning designs into wood and many other materials -- can add a special touch to any project, including wooden trunks and jewelry, wildlife carvings, leather pictures, and paper collages. In this book, Al Chapman will explain the different tools and mediums that can be used, and will show you in detail how to use them for different effects. You will learn several methods of transferring a pattern onto your piece of wood or leather, how to give depth to your pictures with crosshatching, stippling, and flat-edge shading, how to make realistic-looking fur, and how to add shadows and highlights. Chapmans extensive experience with these techniques allows him to give you helpful hints for keeping your pictures realistic looking, with subtle and graceful lines. You will also learn how to use your pyrography techniques on paper, a technique that is useful for borders, collages, or decoupage.
