This is a straight-forward, well-illustrated book intended to get the beginner up and creating complex art ASAP. It's beautifully laid out, and clearly written. My only objection is that it illustrates a wide range of tools, which is fine if you have a lot of specific tools, but for the person like me with one el-cheapo woodburner with one tip, it looks a bit daunting. Patterns are included for all the pretty projects. Once I find some of the specialty tools, it will be a lot easier to get started.
Very good book for the beginning pyrographer. Si explains woodburners, use of nibs, safety, unique projects, and so much more. If you are a beginning woodburner I suggest you buy this book. Very well written and instructional.
This book is well done, great photography and has a lot of patterns and such in it. I am not a pyrographer but I am interested in learning how to do it. This book contains a lot of information on gearing up with equipment and material for starting to burn but it really does not give me enough information on the technique of burning that I was looking for. It will be helpful for buying things to get started but just not enough information on what to do with it once I get it. This is one of those books that can be helpful at first and then again later as you use the patterns.
This book is well done and easy to understand. Many nice pictures. Am learning to woodburn on gourds and this helping a lot. Am just a beginner so every idea is great for me. Breaks down the machine and tips and provides step-by-step projects. A lot of simple patterns to use. Nice to keep around and refer to as you burn!
I like this book, but it would have been better if it had a bit more info about burning tools. That's the true expense when it comes to wood burning. YouTube videos are better for teaching this craft than books. You really need to see how to use the tools. GEtting in there and just burning away is NOT the way to go and once you make a mistake, you can't erase it! This book has good ideas in it and I like looking at other people's work, so I give it a 4!
I have several books on pyrography, but this gives a different perspective to the traditional designs. I would not consider this a beginners books since it focuses on variable temperature burners with different tips (not your standard hobby store kit), but it is good for people who have invested in more sophisticated burners and want to learn how to use them. He goes over the different tips and the effects that can be achieved with each and suggests some practice pieces before launching into projects. The book includes patterns in the back, and I am especially happy about the different font alphabets he includes.
good but...Good projects and directions but not enough general information for a beginner and limited to adjustable burner. Good artist
I'm new to gourd crafting and this book provided some good information for how to do wood burning that I could apply to my new craft. It was geared to actual "wood" burning, but many of the skills will transfer.
