This stunning fine writing instrument features a unique texture and finish that is achieved by combining the techniques of Ishiji and Tamenuri.
The Ishiji technique of Urushi Lacquer Art involves several steps of painting Urushi in fine layers and sprinkling dried Urushi powder. After each layer dries up, Urushi is painted again and this process is repeated several times. When the desired texture is achieved, the surface is polished using charcoal and Suri-Urushi is painted to complete the texture. The Tamenuri technique of Urushi Lacquer Art creates a most unique finish which radiates shades of the Urushi color used as a base and the translucent layer of natural Urushi painted over.
