Woodburning with Style
Pyrography Lessons and Projects with a Modern Flair

Author(s): Simon Easton  

Page Count: 208  Size: 11x8.5x0.5  ISBN: 978-1-56523-443-7

 Just as there is often a story behind a handcrafted piece, there is a story behind Woodburning with Style. That story begins with award-winning artist and pyrographer Simon Easton, who has dubbed his creations "wood tattoos" because they remind him of getting a tattoo - both mark a surface, and both can be used to commemorate an event or communicate a feeling.

With his contemporary flair and use of pattern, Easton takes you on a journey from the concepts and basics of woodburning, to tips and techniques that encourage your creativity and the development of style. Step-by-step projects such as coasters, key rings, and a wall clock are mixed in with lessons on everything from making simple marks to texturing and lettering.

Easton's fondness for pyrography is evident throughout the book. His teaching style is one that imparts guidance while letting you find your own creative niche with the art form. If you are a beginner, Woodburning with Style will have you wanting to learn more, and if you are an experienced pyrographer, you will be inspired by Easton's designs.
