This book teaches techniques of pyrography, beginning with proper grip of the tool when burning straight lines, curves, circles, crosshatching, and stippling.
Chapman then leads you through a thorough description of realistically rendering hair and fur, and covers every detail of burning the image of a single feather into a maple board, a well-chosen exercise that is easy to follow, covers a range of techniques, and produces a unique work of art. He also describes finishing options and adding color to your completed project.
Well illustrated throughout with numerous color photographs.
