URUSHI CUSTOMIZATION: ISHIME-NURI TECHNIQUE
Ishime-Nuri • 石目塗 is a lacquer technique in which the surface of lacquer becomes uneven like a stone skin.
These fine stones are made by applying "charcoal powder" or "dry lacquer powder" (kanshittsu-fun) on top of Coloured Urushi and then applying another layer of Urushi on top of it to polish it.
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, We customize Standard Catalog Fountain pen from Pilot, Sailor, & Platinum by converting the polish resin body or polish ebonite into Stone-like 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 body for protection.
