Hye Sea, an amazing young artist has become a force to reckon with in the world of design paintings with the use of the sun for amazing and perfect artworks.
A report gathered by Face2FaceAfrica indicates that the art of focusing the energy of the sun to a concentrated beam and guide that beam of light to thus create designs is called solar engraving.
Solar engraving comes with many benefits as it does not involve the use of any normal painting equipment such as paintbrushes or paints but still produces permanent designs.

All that is required for solar engraving, which talented Hye Sea calls MagnifyTheSUN, only requires a magnifying glass and a piece of drawing material.
It produces absolutely no waste which means the process uses nature for the designs without causing any harm to nature in the process.
It is indicated that Sea first discovered this technique as a teenager in high school when she and her older brother would sit outside with magnifying glasses, setting fire to leaves, paper and anything in arms reach.
Without a paint but had a magnifying glass and scrap wood from her father’s carpentry shop, Sea began using accessible resources and environmentally sensible materials to create works of art.
