About Wood Burning

You would probably struggle to find a craft with a more dramatic name than pyrography, which literally translates to “writing with fire.” No matter what surface you choose to work on creatively, the same principle and process applies, namely the application of heat to a surface to make a range of decorative marks. Irrespective of the origin of the name, this is not a craft for fireworks, explosions, and drama. Pyrography is a hobby that requires patience, skill, and a steady hand in order to master the techniques and become confidently proficient in your own ability.
