Danitrio makes remarkable hand painted pens using the Japanese skill and craftsmanship that has been mastered over the last few thousand of years. Urushi is performed on the pen, after it has been hand selected, and prepared.
Plain Urushi painting has two different methods to complete on pens. One is Hana-nuri or Nuri-tate and the other is Roiro-migaki or Rorio-shiage. Hana-nuri starts with the process of Shita-nuri (base painting) which takes one day to dry. Then, Naka-nuri(middle painting) preparing for final painting, also takes one day to dry. Uwa-nuri (final painting) uses the best quality oiled Urushi to finish the work. The oiled Urushi has a natural luster by itself when it is used for painting and dried. Better quality Urushi-nuri usually requires base painting 2-3 times, middle painting 2 times and final painting 3 times.
Roiro-migaki has the same “base painting” and “middle painting” with Hana-nuri, but oil-free Urushi, refined Urushi called Roiro-urushi is used for the final painting. After this, some special charcoal is used to burnish the surface repeatedly until the surface is shiny with luster. The work of burnishing is done differently by the craftsmen. The final finish will take a few days or more depending on the weather and humidity where the work is done.
