An apparatus capable of obtaining a high-quality picture is provided for each person at a low price. The sublimation ink remaining after a picture has been recorded by a rotary sublimation thermal head is gasified by sublimation heater rolls, and a gas thus obtained is mixed in a solid or a liquid with a solvent in a receptacle, the resultant mixture being applied again to dry the solvent and form a uniform solidified coat layer, which is reused by the recording head.
