Building on the lessons of Learn to Burn, this book teaches the next level of pyrography skills while still welcoming those who are new to the craft. The first chapter walks you through the basics, providing a clear summary of the tools, general techniques and terminology used; more advanced techniques and detailed explanations are provided as needed for the individual projects.
The 18 projects progress in skill level, ranging from applying a texture pattern to a key fob to burning a leather border of elaborately layered leaves for a mirror frame. All the patterns needed to reproduce the projects are included.
More than just a collection of projects, this book shows how to take simple repeated elements and combine them into complex patterns, guiding even woodworkers of limited artistic ability to create beautiful designs.
