Also called dei-e “DŠG. Gold and silver powders mixed with glue and employed to decorate crafts, calligraphy, paintings and papers. During the Nara and the Heian periods, it was popular to apply gold and silver paint with a brush to dark wood and black lacquerware. Many fine examples of this technique remain today in the Nara *Shousouin ³‘q‰@. This brilliant gold or silver paint was often contrasted against dark navy or purple silk or paper for decoration on Buddhist paintings and the inside covers of sutra handscrolls. Good examples are the Mandala of Two Worlds *Ryoukai mandara —¼ŠE™Ö䶗… at Jingoji _ŒìŽ› in Kyoto and at Kojimadera ¬“‡Ž› in Nara, and the decorated sutra covers at Chuusonji ’†‘¸Ž› in Iwate prefecture. From the Edo period, there are the handscrolls painted by Tawaraya Soutatsu •U‰®@’B (?-1643?) with waka ˜a‰Ì calligraphy by Honnami Kouetsu –{ˆ¢–íŒõ‰x (1558-1637).
