Description

This is gofun in a tube made of high quality Japanese oyster gofun (Hakujuin) kneaded with animal glue.
Since it is already kneaded, it is very convenient to use immediately just like the regular tube paints.



Gofun is a Japanese traditional “white” color whose component is calcium carbonate made from Itabo oyster. Left and weathered for over 10 to 15 years, shells are grinded to a stone powder with a stone mill. At the same time, they are purified well and made into sheet-shaped by air seasoning. You can mix with general pigments such as sumi ink and vermillion. The quality becomes finer as it goes by Shirayuki(白雪印), Hakuju(白寿印) and Kinpo. Kinpo(金鳳印) is a soft color which is suitable for coating and finishing and Shirayuki(白雪印) is a white color that is suitable for base coating.
