A sieve for sprinkling gold dust, made of bamboo.
It is commonly used in the traditional Japanese technique, Sunago, by creating a background of torn flakes of gold scattered across the paper.
Place the metal leaf and Kirimawashi (metal leaf flakes) in a sieve and sifted out by stirring with a Tataki brush (pounding brush).
The size of the metal leaf flakes that comes out of the sieve depends on the roughness of the mesh, so choose the one that best suits your preferences and needs.
In the case of Kinkeshi/ Kindei (gold powder), you can put the powder into a sieve and pound it gently to sprinkle the gold powder.
