Burning Profile Chart

A pictorial burning profile and full performance description of over 35 tip varieties.
I've run a series of tests on a variety of burning tips.
I've focused my attention on the 3 main decorative tip stypes of a wire nib burning system, the Skew, the Writer and the Shader.
The resulting chart gives a full description of the tip's burning capabilities, a picture of the tip and a life size burning profile.
This is an excellent resource for those burners who are confused about tip styles and their application.

Please visit the Interchangeable Tip Page or the Fixed-Tip Page to view the Burning Profile Chart.
New! Tip Burning Profiles

We've put together 9 different varieties of Discounted Pyrography Package.
The prices are truly surprising!
I am offering equipment packages full of educational material and helpful products because experience has shown me that people tend to buy burning machines, get them home and think, 'what now?' The machine either ends up collecting dust in a cupboard or its full potential is never realized.
The packages have been carefully designed to provide you with the leading pyrography equipment on the market AND the leading pyrography education on the market.

Please visit the Discount Package Page for a detailed description of each package and it's pricing.
