Sometimes lacquer painted surface becomes relatively large and gives a dull impression.
In that case there are a lot of techniques to cover it using seashell(螺鈿),
egg shell(卵殻), metal powder(梨地), metal foil(箔仕上げ) and so on.

Recently I'm practicing  'jimon' (地紋) that is to paint a pattern 
on the finished surface.

This is a traditional finite pattern called 'seigaiha (青海波)', or sea waves.

And this is a pattern of chrysanthemum. 
It took two hours after practicing on the tile as below.

I painted with lacquer and let it dry halfway and scattered gold powder on it to finish.

This is also a chrysanthemum pattern.
