hello guys :)
today i finished one of the designs with eureka chinkin v2 technique.
still a long way to go, and much failures.
however, improvements are gradually taking place.
this time i made a cap with yellow tamenuri, with blossom grooves (filled with silver urushi)
unlike the usual chinkin, the grooves are almost completely filled, so the surface is flat.
a lot of filling is required, so pure gold will be too expensive to do.
however, i am still keeping gold in my option, as filler material.
may have to lower the karat to 14~18K
currently, i am developing eureka chinkin V3.
unlike the predecessor, i will finally be able to make absolute precision lines.
i will be able to express lines that can be as fine as a human hair.
much research is needed to absolutely ensure, i can achieve this difficult feat.
i am now gathering equipments and materials, as well as developing my own modified equipments.
i am expecting this research to end by this month, however, unexpected obstacles are always there, so can be delay a bit more.
