Product Description: Chinkin is a technique requiring immense dexterity and skill in which the artistan chisels out a pattern on a lacquered surface and then will embed the grooves with gold leaf (gold hammered into thin sheet) and gold powder. The gold is sealed in by applying an exterior layer of urushi.
