I discovered Bee on Instagram a few years ago, when I started looking into learning wood burning so I could customize guitars. Her art inspired me to push beyond what I had thought woodburning could be. She is brilliant!
This book is also brilliant. It covers everything you need to know to get started – from tools for transferring designs, burning, and cleaning your burning tips, to safety equipment that will protect your lungs (I wish I had known about this when I started! So important!). The projects are gorgeous, and range in difficulty from beginner to advanced. The templates on the back are helpful to get an artist started with enjoying the art, without also needing to learn drawing skills.
I’m so happy to have this book on my shelf, and look forward to sharing it with others who want to learn the art of pyrography.~Madeline

I’m ready to ramp up my pyrography game! Thank you, Bee!~Amazon Customer
This is an awesome pyrography book! It is very detailed in every aspect of wood burning – including choosing the best wood and tip, pattern application, and project sealant. It has informative troubleshooting tips as well. The finished project photos are full color and the pattern/template section is a great bonus! Highly recommend!~Gretchen
