Burning Textures #1 - Basket Weave

Burning Textures and Patterns - #1 Basket Weave. By Sue Walters. About Texture burning: Pyrography or, ‘woodburning’ is unique as a drawing technique. It's one of the very few mediums where an impression can be made into the surface as the drawing takes place. The benefit of this is that pyrographic tools can be used to texture and pattern surfaces in a way that is almost 3D in effect. This is the first in a series of free videos I will be presenting on YouTube. The series will be quite extensive and will focus on using wood burning tools to texture and pattern surfaces and objects. These textures can be applied to: decorating flat objects, doing gourd work, decorating 3D and turned objects and folk art. They can be burnt on wood, leather, paper, gourds and many other natural materials. The possibilities are virtually endless, the results are stunning and it is seriously fun to do. After the entire series has been uploaded I will bundle up the videos for sale as a DVD. The DVD will have printed patterns, coloured pictures and other additional information. More to follow on this at a later stage. Please subscribe to me on YouTube to be notified of further video releases. Copyright, Sue Walters 2016
