【How to make scarlet copper】
It is a very difficult technique to fix a special scarlet film originally in copper by heating pure copper that has been polished cleanly to the "limit" and rapidly cooling it in an aqueous solution of borax at a good timing.
It is a natural coloring that does not use a coloring material (coating) such as glaze or paint. Moreover, we do not use beeswax, abrasives etc at all for finishing.
<A word from a writer>
The engraved copper plate which the craftsman practiced does not have the same one. Furthermore, if there is a straight one in one line, there are also bends. Sometimes, there are also various practiced things such as Japanese engraving, Western carving, stone clasping, and unique copper plate to detail.
I will decide what kind of work will be made from the copper plate.
Cut out with a thread saw, scrape with a file, and then polish until it shines shiny with buffs. At this time, the carving may disappear if you do not pay attention.
Finally it will be a scarlet copper work.
