I used all the woodburning tips on a basswood board to see which techniques were the easiest, what took some work, and what was a downright pain.
I give you a sample for the shading tip from the board down below.

Woodburning Tips & Their Uses
About the Transfer Point
This tip is about 1 inch around, fairly thick and flat, like a bulky coin.
I remember first seeing this point in my kit and thinking - what the devil is THAT for?
And when I saw how it actually burned wood, my next thought was, well I'm never using THAT tip again.
But as it turns out, this tip just has a very specific purpose.
And when used for that purpose, this little tip is invaluable.
Best Uses: What I love About The Transfer Point
It's main use is what is was named for...
If there is a pyrography pattern you want to use, this is your biggest asset!
Print that pattern out on a laser printer or copy machine then use this tool to transfer it to the wood! Sooooo much easier than using graphite paper or the trusty old fashioned scribble-all-over-the-back-of-the-paper-and-trace-it-on technique.
