Complete Pyrography by Stephen Poole


Product Code: GMC1006 Category:


Stephen’s book comprehensively covers the subject from the history of the craft, also referred to as ‘pokerwork’ in earlier centuries, materials and equipment required through to all the skills to create ‘burnt wood art decoration’.

Starting with basic tracing, Stephen explores all the techniques to recreate lifelike textures and shading to conjure up inspiring images of nature, still-life and atmospheric scenes. Stephen’s forte is nature-inspired compositions and so his expertise will allow the reader to tackle fine detail of fur, skin and eyes as well as wonderful insect subjects and flora. Also covering colour work and the pros and cons of gouache, watercolour and woodstains, Stephen insists it should be a matter of pyrography enhanced by colour and not a painting with pyrography details.
