-Shin-iwa Pigment- * Set pigments (Shin-iwa Ginkomatsu, Shin-iwa Matsubarokusho)
Among natural mineral pigments, gunjo (azurite), rokusho (malachite), and cinnabar are the major colors, but all of them are very expensive. Also, the number of the colors is limited according to the limited kinds ores are used as raw materials. Shin-iwa paint was newly developed under such circumstances. Shin-iwa pigments are made by crushing colored glass which are produced by firing glaze and metal oxides at high temperature. The process of grinding and separating the pigments are in the same way of manufacturing the natural mineral pigments. The durability of the Shin-iwa pigment is extremely high, and it became possible to create a wide range of colors not found in natural mineral pigments.

-Natural Mineral Pigment - *Set pigments (Natural Tourensekimatsu, Natural Matsubarokusho)
Natural mineral pigments are mainly made from ores (azurite, malachite, cinnabar, etc.) and grinded into grains. It is manufactured from the same raw material to the about 10 different granularities, and it becomes finer as the number increases from 5 (coarse) to 13 (powder), and "byaku (white) " refers to the finest powder form. The color tone changes as the grain size changes, with coarse # 5 being the darkest and lightness increasing as the grain size becomes finer. Because of the difference in grain size and specific gravity, it is mostly used as a single color.
