Step 4: Coating Urushi (Japanese Lacquer)
Urushi is a natural sap from the urushi tree and has been found to have been used in Japan as early as 7000 BC. Japanese urushi lacquerware, referred to as "Japan" in the old days, was introduced to the West in 16th century and widely spread, and immediately enthralled royalty and nobility.
There are lots of methods and techniques of coating urush which needs to repeat a process of coating, drying, and polishing over and over again. This hairbrush is "Wajima-nuri", one of well-known methods in Japan, with gold powder and mother-of-pearl-flecks decorations (they are called "makie" and "raden").
