Norma Gregory, the author of this book Pyrography designs provides a collection of designs for pyrographers to use without fear of copyright infringement. Her clear text explains the best method for tracing the designs and transferring them on to wood, and gives tips on applying shading and colour, and how to finish the piece. She provides detailed step-by-step illustrations on how to create new designs from separate elements, with advice on scale and perspective. Norma also includes application of subtle colors, and watercolors that are transparent and allow your work to show through, such as tinting the lilies keeping them with the natural range of colors. This is a great book for someone who is wanting to further themselves in woodburning.
