Regardless of Explanation
Urushi on Clayboard

Urushi (the Japanese name for lacquer) is is a viscous fluid organic material that comes from the milky sap of several varieties of an Asian tree. Urushi products can last hundreds of years while retaining their glossiness, smoothness and elegance. Their colors do not fade with the impact of light and time, and amazingly, as the years go by and the pieces age, their colors keep getting deeper and become more luminous. Artists mix urushi with color pigments and various natural dyes. Other embedding materials can be used, such as eggshell, mother-of-pearl, plant fibers, sand, and gold and silver leaf.
