3 Pens, 8 Butterflies


Have you tried gourd pyrography & ended up frustrated? The pen just doesn’t do what you want it to do? Do you find yourself blaming your tools? I want to help!


I have over 20 years experience in gourd pyrography, and I want to share with you some good practices for you to jumpstart your own skills in pyrography.


By using a repeat butterfly design you will learn and practice eight pyrography techniques from just three pens.




In this course you will:

  • Learn how to care for pens and the differences between pens and burners.
  • Learn the properties of my 3 favorite pens, and how to use to produce a range of tones and textures with them.  
  • You will find out how to burn consistent, even lines without blobs or skips. 
  • You will learn to shade smoothly when you want, and how to use the shader for textures. 
  • Learn the 3 main variables pyrographers must get right.
  • Discover by the end of this course which pen you like to use best to achieve the desired outcome.
