Pyrography became popular during Victorian times and today is seeing a true revival of this art. Join Lora S. Irish, author of over twenty wood carving, wood burning, pyrography, and pattern books, as she teaches you the skills and techniques used in this craft. Learn about the different wood burning tools including variable temperature tools, one temperature tools, and wood burning tool tips.

Step by step instructions are offered for tracing and transferring your pattern, how to prepare your wood surface, and for how to finish a wood burning design. Also explore all of the wonderful different medias you can use in your pyrography as leather, paper, gourds, cotton cloth, and even chipboard scrap book pages.
