Default Manu Propria Pens - Ko-Negoro

A pair of "Shibui Slim" Type pens with a Negoro lacquer variety I call "Ko-Negoro"Ancient or just Old Negoro. Differently to regular Negoro-Nuri the Ko-Negoro-Nuri has not only signs of wear and tear but also small cracks that are typical found on very old lacquer artefacts. The cracks are achieved with brushing egg-white on still wet lacquer. Lacquer with cracks caused by egg-white is called "Hibi-Nuri". So, the correct term would actually be "Hibi-Negoro-Nuri" but I just call it old negoro

Best regards,

I've been wondering how the cracks were made. Thanks for sharing the details and the beautiful pens.

Love it!!
I think just having these pics blown up and nicely matted and framed or simply poster size would make for some nice wall art!
