◆ What is lacquer technique “Ishime-nuri”? Ishime-nuri
is a lacquer technique in which the surface of lacquer becomes uneven like a stone skin. Fine stones are made by applying lacquer and then sowing “charcoal powder” or “dry lacquer powder”, and then applying lacquer and polishing. In addition, since lacquer has the property of hardening by absorbing moisture in the air, it takes several days to several weeks to dry, so it takes several months to complete the lacquer product.
For this product, the ebonite of the fountain pen body is coated with lacquer to be pretreated, and then the undercoat lacquer is applied on top of it, and then the dry lacquer powder created in the same color as the colored lacquer is sown, and the finish lacquer is applied to the restraint. After that, it is a gem that has been painted and polished with the finished colored lacquer many times.
