When I wrote this book I set out to write the most comprehensive and complete pyrography/woodburning book the public had ever seen. I didn't want to write a 'burn by numbers' book that left the reader with a few completed pyrography projects and little else. I wanted to write a book that passed on all the pyrographic knowledge I had. One that both grounded the novice burner and expanded the knowledge of the more experienced burner. A book that excited creativity and taught lessons and techniques that could be applied to any future projects. It took a heck of a lot of work, but I think I succeeded in my goals...I hope you think so too:)

    SUMMARY
    When I was asked to write a book of wildlife patterns I initially intended them to be only applicable to the craft of pyrography, after all, that's what I know best. But as I was producing the designs it occurred to me that each pattern could be as equally useful to many other crafts, multiplying the usefulness of the book many times over. I then set out to not only produce 30 dynamic wildlife designs, (and 10 border designs) but to also show the reader how to adapt and manipulate the designs for use in other creative mediums.
    The 30 full page wildlife designs are rendered in both line and tone patterns. The book explains how each pattern type is best used and the crafts they can be applied to. It goes on to further explain how these patterns can be further adapted for use in specialty crafts, such as chip carving, relief carving quilting, stained glass etc. I also included a chapter on using the home computer to modify and manipulate designs in order to create many new patterns and increase their versatility. Of course, all of this information is not just applicable to the patterns in this book, it can be used in years to come whenever you are using patterns or making your own.
    Finally, to prove the theory, myself and some friends selected one design and applied it to several crafts. The gallery in the book shows the results and gives a summary of how the pattern was used in each case.
    My ultimate objective was similar to what I had hoped to achieve with the Pyrography Workbook: to jam the book full of solid, easy to understand information; to stimulate ideas; to provide quality material and to give the reader more than they could have expected.
