One of the best things about Pyrography design is that you never stop learning. There is always a new project idea to read about, a new pattern to design, a new blog post to read. Burning with fire is simply an art filled with endless possibilities. One of the best projects that you can create right now is a realistic looking hair. Here are useful guides that can help you do so.
Sharon’s guide is one of the easiest pieces that you can follow. On her blog, Burning with Sharon, she has a video to help you learn how to burn a beautiful hair.
In this video I show how to create realistic looking locks of hair that have movement and shine. This technique can be used both for human hair and longer animal hair such as horse mane or longer dog hair.
It is best to watch the video from start to finish. Then try the best you can to implement what Sharon teaches.
Are you struggling when it comes to drawing hair? Drawing hair can be an intimidating task for those who are just learning how to draw. With the overwhelming amount of detail and commitment required, many people lose their patience and resort to a series of sloppy scribbles. To some of us, drawing hair can be a nightmare. But a change in your approach can help you leave those fears behind. In this tutorial, I will introduce 4 simple steps for drawing realistic looking hair.
I also recommend going through the tutorial first to understand what the creator is doing. And then, go through the video again, this time as you draw with fire.
Wood Workers Institute is another great resource that guides you on how you can burn realistic hair. This guide is for both beginners and people with experience.
When burning a realistic representation of an animal coat, it’s important to select a nib with the correct profile and use it in such a way as to reproduce the texture and look of the animal. Experimentation shows what is possible. Given experience and knowledge, there is little that can’t be reproduced in pyrography.
To get the most out of the guide provided here, it would be best to make the guide itself practical. Doing so helps you get better with time.
Getting started on this can be somewhat tricky, especially if you are doing it for the first time. However, you need to keep practicing, until you can create a realistic hair yourself – without making references to any design.
