Woodburning Realistic People

by Jo Schwartz


Turning a photograph of a loved one into a realistic pyrography pattern is easier than you think! Discover the art of portrait burning, and start creating perfect likenesses of your favorite people in wood.

Pyrography artist Jo Schwartz reveals her dazzling techniques for turning photographs into custom portraits. She shows how to create beautiful images that resemble old, sepia-colored photos, using smooth shading methods that she has developed over years of burning.

 You will learn how to make a custom woodburning pattern from any picture and transfer it onto wood. Jo shows how to render the human face with detail and beauty, with expert tips for burning lifelike skin tones and facial features. She offers easy-to-follow instructions for creating expressive eyes, noses, mouths, ears, skin, and hair for every age and ethnicity. Practice what you have learned with a step-by-step, illustrated project.

I have known Jo since she started woodburning back in 2005. I remember when she first started & was afraid to burn too dark but I watched her work evolve over the years as she gained confidence. She has turned out to be a very accomplished artist & has really mastered the technique of smooth shading.

I have every confidence that this book will provide you with a great learning experience.
