Harbingers of Spring   $1300.00   Qty : 1

Original gold leafed panels using the classical Japanese method of kinpakku. Special paper is first stretched onto wood panels. These are treated to make them non absorbent. Next the adhesive is applied. After this has set for 12 or so hours, the work is gold leafed. For large pieces such as this, I have to use Chinese Composition Gold Leaf therefore, the surface has to be treated to prevent discoloration. After that, they sit for 6 months curing. The painting is done with Japanese mineral colors called iwaenogu and ground seashells, gofhun. The black is sumi pine pitch ink. These screens are called kinbyobu.
