  • Thank Goodness, I've found a craft forum!!! Are there any pyrographers?

    Hi to all you fellow crafters!!! It has all been a bit of a whirlwind!!! I am a pyrographer (woodburner). I am having real problems in finding all things to do with my craft. The library find me books, that have come from the stone age!!! Ok so I live in wiltshire, but I would love to find some recent publications. Where else do people buy stuff for pyrography?
    Blanks, metal wire for burner etc? Can anyone help? Also public liabilty.......do you know of anyone who does monthly payments? And who to goto for craft fairs?

    Cheers

              Welcome, welcome, Burning Bush!

              I'm a pyrographer, and I've spoken to a couple more here on the forum, so you're not alone!


              If it helps, there's some hints and tips about pyrography here on my site : http://www.scorchpyro.co.uk/Techniques.html

              some chat about how I started in the craft here : http://www.scorchpyro.co.uk/Chat.html

              and some links to suppliers here : http://www.scorchpyro.co.uk/Thanks.html

              plus some photos of my pyro work here, although I do more sort of unusual things, not really suitable for craft fairs :

              If you have the sort of machine that takes nichrome wire that you form yourself, then Peter Childs will sell the wire to you by the reel, and I will be MORE than happy to sell it to you by the 6-inches or foot (can you tell that I bought some reels and now have FAR too much?)


              I just started pyrographing stuff without any books or whatever, but there are some nice ones out there. Why not search on EBay or Amazon? Stephen Poole's book is interesting, defintely. Plus, it's not as though the idea of burning things into wood is anything new - as long as your book doesn't rely on you using pokers, benzene or acetylene, you should be OK!


              I think if you search here on the site, you will find other threads with info about craft fairs and insurance and such...
              Cheers,
              Scorch

                to the Forum! I'm one of the other resident pyrographers, and I also live in Wiltshire. I'm currently in the early stages of writing a book on it as well, so I may be able to recommend a publication in the near future!!

                With regards to your other questions, you are in the right place on this forum as Scorch said. Have a browse around and check out the threads on topics such as insurance, fairs etc.

                All the best,
