Although it is often referred to as woodburning, the art of pyrography can be worked on just about any natural surface, including gourds and leather. Lora Irish offers more than 40 detailed new projects that further explore the craft of pyrography across a range of inventive media. Inside you'll find suggestions on basic supplies and tools, tips on hand positions and temperature settings, as well as techniques on creating tonal values, understanding shadows, adding colour and finishing your work. Each fascinating feature project has complete instructions plus photographs of both the finished piece and the work-in-progress across pale, medium, dark and detailed stages. Some of the projects you'll find inside: Blue Jay Mill on leather (shown on cover), Steampunk Photo Frame on chipboard, Sunflower Yarn Caddy on paper mache, Christmas Lamb & Sheltie on mahogany plywood and many more. Choose your favourite surface and have fun with Lora's new amazingly detailed designs! 142 pages.
