Well this time
“Make eyes with traditional techniques”
“rein to pencil” lures use traditional techniques in the eye making process.
What technique is used?
Let’s take a look at the production process.
This article introduces the traditional technique of lacquer “TUIKIN” transmitted to OKINAWA.
Please see techniques unique to OKINAWA.
First, heat the lacquer.
Heating makes the subsequent work process smoother.
Transfer the heated lacquer to a worktable such as a vat and mix it with a color powder called pigment.
If it mixes to some extent, hit it with a hammer and knead it further.
It’s okay if the shape is well organized.
Once the shape is solid to some extent, it will be stretched thinly.
Once stretched out, cut it out to your favorite shape with a die cutter or design knife.
Once the mold is finished, move it to a separate sheet and paste it in a well-balanced manner.
Since it is clay-like, various decorations are possible, such as pushing and spreading.
The above technique is called “TUIKIN”.
From here it slowly dries over time, forming a stronger film after about half a year.
It is not worth the time and effort.
If you put a sticker on your eyes, it is a process that takes only a few seconds.
Among the many lacquer processes,
it is a traditional technique unique to OKINAWA,
so I would like to leave it for future generations.
