Extract from back cover of book:

Capture the Beauty of Nature with Fire

Whether it's the majesty of a buck, the cheekiness of a raccoon, or the peaceful stillness of a loon, the appeal of wildlife is universal. If you're a woodburning artist with a love of nature and animals, Pyrography Patterns will make it easy for you to create vibrant and attractive wildlife images.

Award-winning pyrography artist Sue Walters offers 30 dynamic North American wildlife patterns to use in woodburning projects. These engaging animal subjects - including geese, eagles, bear, deer, wolves, foxes, owls, chipmunks, cougars, and more - are presented in harmonious natural settings.

Large ready-to-use designs are provided in both line and tonal patterns. Amazingly detailed tones are shown directly over each line drawing, to guide you in darkening your picture with ultra-realistic, lifelike effects. The author includes tips on transferring patterns, plus advice on segmenting and manipulating the images to create your own custom designs.
