Tamenuri Studio - what does it mean. 

If you are a geek or fountain pen lover - you know. But you can also know nothing. 

 

Tamenuri - is a technique of lacquering with urushi, often used on fountain pens.

Studio - it is obvious.

 

Temneuri, or tame-nuri - “tame” means pool. “nuri” means painting/lacquering. 

In this technique you lacquer the pen with solid colour, and cover it with thin layers of transparent urushi. Either clear (amber, in reality) or black transparent. Each of those layers is sanded and at least 4 of them are applied. In effect, you get a smooth surface which is thinner at every edge, corner or sharp curve (sanding!). In those thiner areas you can see underlying colour layer better. On fountain pen it is usually edge of cap and barrel, threads, and on some pens - other edges - best example is Nakaya Decapod with 10 facets and 10 edges. Tamenuri can use different underlying colours and two tamenuri layers, so you have aka-tamenuri - transparent over red (aka=red), but also kuro-tamenuri - black over red (kuro - black) and many more (heki, midori, toki etc). 

Very important aspect of tamenuri is a finish - perfect gloss and shine, like a surface of still lake at a windless night. It is achieved in the process of uwazuri. And my last video is on UWAZURI. Please watch it, like it, and subscribe to support my work in promoting  urushi.

I'm cooling down after excitement of being featured by Stephen Brown in his channel so I got back to work ;)

 
Montblanc Meisterstuck 149 (including Calligraphy Special Edition) in my new video.
 
I am lacquering three 149s with urushi right now so I decided to show the pen closer. Including a special edition with a flexible nib - Calligraphy. I compare it with 146, 144, 142 (celluloid from the 50s) and of course with the Pelikan M1000. I show how these pens write, how to take it apart, how to prepare it for lacquering with urushi, too. 
 
In writing sequences I have a "hand doubble" ;-)
