The Ishiji technique of Urushi Lacquer Art involves several steps of painting Urushi in fine layers and sprinkling dried Urushi powder. After each layer dries up, Urushi is painted again and this process is repeated several times. When the desired texture is achieved, the surface is polished using charcoal and Suri-Urushiis painted to complete the texture. Urushi is the luxurious sap that is found in the Urushi tree, native to Japan.
