THE DELINEATOR Magazine, November 1895 issue, pp. 627–629.
Butterick Publishing Co., London & New York.
This is the ninth in a series of eleven monthly articles on burnt work by American artist Harriet Keith Fobes for The Delineator magazine.
In this ninth article, Fobes offers large-scale projects to her readers, who, she believes, after following her earlier articles, should at this point be ready to take on more advanced work. She offers more designs suitable for works like screens, friezes, portières, and more. Tracing is once more discussed, as she explains how to work with brown paper and charcoal to work out a large-scale pattern. Although this article is mostly about projects in leather, the author does note the harmonious possibilities of combining burnt work on leather, say for a chair seat, while also burning designs on the wooden parts of the same chair.
