4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but wish templates were bigger 23 Feb 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good for beginners and gives some good tips, but the projects aren't as easy to follow as they could have been. I wish the author had chosen to include a couple of extra pages with full-size templates, rather than include a tiny thumbnail on each project page. This book is good for getting ideas from, but not for following the projects step-by-step.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rather disappointing 3 Oct 2010
I got this book out of the library and to be honest I'm glad I hadn't spent money on it. I had finished reading it in 20 mins, and it didn't tell me anything that I wouldn't have worked out with a bit of common sense. There was no detail in the numerous 'step by step' projects: they all seemed to consist of the same set of brief instructions (draw pattern freehand onto item, or copy a template with carbon paper; fill in outlines with pyrography tool; then fill in detail; then colour if desired).

The safety tips might be helpful for some, as would the calligraphy page, showing how to create letters. But I would suggest there are more useful books out there on the subject for your money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 24 Sep 2010
By Ekij
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was a let down.
The pyrography tool used in the book is not the same as the one sold elsewhere on Amazon; which invalidates some of the tip advice.
The projects are a sequence of examples of the author's work but lack the detail and templates to allow the reader to copy what the author has done.
The projects are all of a similar level of difficulty that is perhaps too much for the beginner.
The instructions are repetitive, almost identical for each project, while that's because many of the projects are executed in the same way it's a waste of space in the book that would have been much better employed giving some templates for the reader to copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Step-by-step Pyrography 22 Feb 2010
Excellent book taking the reader from test pieces to creating superb art work!
Many patterns for projects which can be followed along with the author to learn as you go.
Projects not too demanding & will lead any novice into the craft gently.
A must for any pyrographer wannabee!

3.0 out of 5 stars shallow 25 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A rather shallow introduction to what can be a very comprehensive art-form. Not very encouraging for the beginner.Makes too many assumptions about pre-knowledge of the subject.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book of projects 22 Feb 2014
By Agn00
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book contains some easy to complete projects and will give pyrography newcomers some good ideas. The book has a few tips but it would have been good if the author who is obviously experienced could have provided a few more pointers.
