I have made some experiments with Urushi Lacquer recently.
Kinsoku Mitateai is the Term for Urushi Lacquer imitating metal surfaces.
This lacquer is imitating "Zôgan" which is a Japanese metal inlay technique,
"suemon-zôgan" High relief brass inlay. Urushi Lacquer and metal powders.
The stars built from Urushi and powders of Brass, Copper and Bronze.
The black iron ground with fine black dry lacquer powder and iron powder

Wish you all a pleasant weekend.

Martin

Another winner Martin! I really like the texture... it reminds me of a relic which was unearthed! The contrast between the texture and the smooth polished nib and threads helps make this pen special. The stars are just the icing on the cake!
