Just as there is often a story behind a handcrafted piece, there is a story behind Woodburning with Style. That story begins with award-winning artist and pyrographer Simon Easton, who has dubbed his creations "wood tattoos" because they remind him of getting a tattoo - both mark a surface, and both can be used to commemorate an event or communicate a feeling. With his contemporary flair and use of pattern, Easton takes the reader on a journey from the concepts and basics of woodburning, to tips and techniques that encourage creativity and the development of style. Step-by-step projects such as coasters, key rings, and a wall clock are mixed in with lessons on everything from making simple marks to texturing and lettering. Easton's fondness for pyrography is evident throughout the book. His teaching style is one that imparts guidance while letting individuals find their own creative niche with the art form. A great addition to any crafting library, Woodburning with Style will have beginners wanting to learn more and experienced pyrographers inspired by Easton's designs.
