Pyrography also known as heat transfer, traditional Chinese art treasure is made by hot iron soldering in the object to burn marks. In ancient it’s called “Fire needle embroidery” , “fire strokes” and “heat transfer painting” etc. as a rare type of folk arts. This art requires the painter to have a good control of the accuracy and thickness of heat transfer, especially when painting portraits and landscape.
So is it impossible for us to make a pyrography without the skill? Should we take so-called 3-5 years to learn the skill before we manage to paint one? Actually no need, as long as we have a Thunder Laser engraver. With the fastest laser and the most accurate scale, the machine can complete a pyrography easily. Now it’s time to unfold the puzzle.
