by Simon Easton
This UK author transforms a classic craft into an art form that expresses contemporary style.

It includes photos of the author's gorgeous work that are enough to make anyone want to try their hand at this surprisingly easy craft.
Simon Easton's brand of woodburning is hip, edgy, modern.
He's transformed a classic craft into an art form that expresses contemporary style.
The beautifully-photographed guide teaches readers how to draw with fire - otherwise known as pyrography, or woodburning.
They'll learn how to make basic marks, like wavy lines and dots and how shading and repetition creates richly textured patterns.
Easton calls his creations 'wood tattoos,' because each finished piece has a distinctive story to tell.
The end result is the kind of decorative items you'd be proud to display on a mantel, hang on a wall, or give as a personalised gift.
Projects include funky bangle bracelets, a beautiful wall clock and a decorated plate, as well as coasters, key rings, a door sign and more.
