Drawing with Fire
The 25 projects in this book present a modern, easy-to-follow approach to the ancient art of woodburning, also known as pyrography. By pressing a heated woodburning tool to wood, you can “write with fire” to engrave words, a picture or other design and create your own custom art, and with this book Aney Carver of Pyrocrafters shares her expert tips and tutorials to ensure beginners can get an amazing result from their very first try. It’s the perfect guide for anyone looking for a new, impressive yet easy artistic hobby, or who simply wishes to create a custom piece of art to complement the farmhouse décor of their home. Many of the tutorials feature lettered designs, providing fresh inspiration for hand lettering artists to apply their art in a new medium. Readers can create a beautiful lettered sign with the quote “Always kiss my goodnight” in an elegant script, or Christmas tree ornaments featuring a textured mandala design. Each project has step-by-step photos and a pattern template at the back of the book. With projects for coasters, a front door sign, key chains, a clock, jewelry and advanced animal portraits, the creative potential is endless!
