It is a very difficult technique to fix a special scarlet film originally in copper by heating pure copper that has been polished cleanly to the "limit" and rapidly cooling it in an aqueous solution of borax at a good timing.
It is a natural coloring that does not use a coloring material (coating) such as glaze or paint. Moreover, we do not use beeswax, abrasives etc at all for finishing.
<A word from a writer>
This time I used the copper plate on which the arabesque pattern is engraved. One by one If there are straight guidelines, there are also bent ones. Also, the expression of the leaves is different for each line, it is a copper plate with an individual impression.
In this work, I designed a design that shows the properties of metal itself (elasticity) of copper itself, arabesque pattern, scarlet color with shades, comprehensive of them.
∞ (Infiniti) of the eternal symbol is called a bond between people and people, friendship · loyalty
It has a meaning. There is also meaning "fusion".
Three-dimensional emergence, flowing copper streamline beauty. It is a clear scarlet work that gives facial expression to the arabesque and attracts the eye.
Even "tweeting" alone was not easy. The combination of various conditions such as the width and length of copper, the power adjustment, etc., can make a convincing twist for the first time.
Also, when polishing up to shine brightly with buffs, be careful not to let the carving disappear.
Finally it will be a scarlet copper work.
The melting point of copper is 1083 ° C, and the surface is covered with a fire at a temperature close to 1,000 ° C.
It will naturally melt if baked too much. We need technology to make color uniform.

· State of fire
· Where to fly (Condition of fire on copper plate)
· Identify the color of the metal just before the melting point
