This is an excellent book for the beginning Pyrographic Artist.Examples include step by step projects with many fine photographs of the process required to finish a barn, wood wall with flower pots, Wall with stones, Squirrel on a fence post, two others as well as patterns for five woodburnings and a Gallery of some of the completed art work. I Highly recommend this book anyone who wants to get started in this Art form.
This book by Sue Waters, must be an early work, the artistry in her woodburning of things like a stone fence are very amature looking. I guess I expected this book to be as well done as Pyrography Workbook also by Sue Walters. I would not recommend Woodburning Rural Scenes, save your money and purchase the Pyrography workbook instead.
There is a Sue Walters who is an excellent artist and woodworker. This book is not written by her. This book is written by Sue Waters, whose work is not the same as Sue Walters. This book is a decent wood burning book but for a beginner. Books written by Sue Walters are more challenging with more detailed and intricate designs. I've noticed with a lot of reviews written for items that people at times don't carefully read descriptions and details and they end up getting items that they are disappointed with. It pays to read ALL information in depth before you buy something!
This Book was not what I expected. would not recommend for beginners looking for help. Sue Walters books are much better.
This book was published in 1994. Her later books are very good. In this book her example of wood and stone fencing were amateur looking. She was supposed to have an example of how to do glass, She had one window witch didn't look real at all. There are some nice patterns but you have to have them copied smaller or larger.There is a bench in one scene that was not proportional.It would help a brand new newbie but that's it.I feel this book should be pulled in Lew of it age.
Those of you who were fooled by the name - well, I'm right there with you!This piece of crap is written by Sue WATERS, not Sue WALTERS.Don't You be fooled, don't bother with this worthless crap!
This is a great book for woodburning. Got it here fast too! Lots of detail on farm scenes to make.
I got this book for my granddaughter for Christmas, and she has done some very nice work already.The rural scenes are good, just what she wanted!
