    Lora S. Irish specializes in creating original, detailed designs that capture the authenticity and character of popular subjects. Her success as an artist is not only based on the precise illustrations born from extensive research into the origins, history and physiology of her subjects, but by an ability to render her work with the proper color, shading and visual texture that allows an artist to clearly understand the subject and successfully translate the patterns into any medium. As a result, artists have beautifully rendered her patterns and designs in many different forms: body art, paint, pyrography, pencil and ink, needlepoint, stained glass, woodcarving, engraving, stamping, and jewelry.

    With over 100,000 books in print, Lora's popular portfolio of titles include the best-selling Great Book of Tattoo Designs, as well as several others in the series, llike Great Book of Celtic Patterns, Great Book of Fairy Patterns, Great Book of Floral Patterns, and Great Book of Dragon Patterns. She's also written several books on woodcarving, woodburning and wood scrolling as well as being a frequent contributor to WoodCarving Illustrated and Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts magazines.

    " Although it is often referred to as woodburning, the art of pyrography can be worked on just about any natural surface, including gourds, leather, or cotton rag paper. Now Lora Irish, the author of the bestselling Great Book of Woodburning, offers thirty-five amazingly detailed new projects that explore the craft of pyrography across the full range of inventive pyro media. Inside her new book, readers will learn the basics of pyrography systems, tools, supplies and practice boards. Differences between the various substrates are examined and discussed, including both wood and non-wood working surfaces. Irish provides expert advice on temperature settings, fill patterns, hand positions, textures, stroke patterns and more. Chapters are included on creating tonal values, understanding shadows, adding color to your burnings, and finishing the work. Thirty-five new patterns illustrate the application of fine pyrography across a wide variety of imaginative media, including vegetable tanned leather, dried gourds, cotton fabric, artist paper, chipboard and papier-mache. Irish is known for her amazingly detailed patterns that positively exude expression, and this book does not disappoint. Each fascinating project includes complete instructions plus photographs of both the finished piece and the work-in-progress across pale, medium, dark and detailed stages"--
