    That's really a superb set of photos. I love the fact that the final polishing is with fingers - no wonder the pens appear so very tactile, practically begging to be touched.

    Thank you very much. actually a lacquer artist is a polisher rather than a lacquerer. Applying lacquer takes little time but polishing is very time consuming and needs a lot of concentration
