<Scarlet copper of Japanese traditional technique>
【What is scarlet copper】
It is one of the traditional techniques used for decorating weapons since ancient times.
【How to make scarlet copper】
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 with 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 the work of this time, I designed a design that shows the properties of metal itself (elasticity) of copper itself, arabesque pattern, scarlet color with shades, and comprehensive them.
∞ (Infiniti) of the eternal symbol has the meaning of human-to-human ties, friendship and loyalty. It also means "fusion".
Three-dimensional emergence, flowing copper streamline beauty. It is a crisp scarlet work that gives facial expression to the arabesque and attracts eyes.
Even "twisting" alone was not easy. The combination of various conditions such as the width and length of copper, the force adjustment, etc., can make a convincing twist for the first time.
Also, be careful not to let the carving disappear when polishing up to shine brightly with the buff.
Finally it will be work of scarlet copper.
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.
The best red is a very difficult technology.
· Clean polish in pretreatment
· State of fire
· Where to fly (condition of fire on copper plate)
· Identify the color of the metal just before the melting point
