[Note - I found this in my drafts folder. I thought I'd published it in late September. I suppose I'd better publish it now before I give an update.]
I have wood, I have soldering irons, surely I can do some woodburning? Will the net tell me how? If you dear reader have tried pyrography I'd appreciate advice.
I only have a soldering iron, not a special temperature regulated woodburner, but
this Professional pyrography artist only uses a soldering iron.
- Renenactor who has tried pyrography. (ooh, lovely, that's what i want to do)
- Someone who thinks the shroud of Turin is pyrography.
- E "museum" of pyrographic art - mostly later stuff, but a few medieval links.
- Atlantian A&S links page on pyrography - most of the good ones I've listed here.
- An article from 1896 on medieval pyrography. 2 fuzzy pictures of 16th chests and a confusing number of modern reproductions.
- Chest (1550-1600) with pyrography (and inlay?) decoration.
One of the tackiest "you can do it too" sites for a craft I've ever seen. Surprisingly they are in Werribee, not America. ($220 for an iron, I don't think so!)
- Introduction to pyrography worksheets. Assumes you are using a heat regulated iron though.
- applied pyrography newsletter - They are trying to sell their product, but there are a few interesting tips in the short articles.
- The woodburner - forums. Yes they are selling products, but they also seem to have some interesting info.
