An abbreviation of moriage zaishiki ·ãÊF. Pigment or shell-white *gofun ŒÓ•² mixed with glue *nikawa äP applied to a painting surface in a relief-like manner. A traditional technique in Japanese painting often used in conjunction with brightly colored pigments *gokusaishiki ‹ÉÊF. This technique can be seen in the built-up application of verdigris *rokushou —ΐ on the pine needles depicted on the 1053 door-paintings of Byoudouin *Hououdou •½“™‰@™€–P“° in Kyoto. In Buddhist painting from the 14c onward, shell-white or powdered gold were thickly applied under brilliant colors to the patterns of both paintings and sculpted images. However, the technique is mainly associated with sliding-door and screen paintings on gold foil *kinpeki shouhekiga ‹à•Éá•Ç‰æ produced from the 16c to the 18c. For example, in depicting flowers such as chrysanthemums in particular, shell-white was applied thickly to each petal thus slightly raising the motif from the painting surface and thereby suggesting volume. In modern paintings, new materials such as powdered colored glass and metal powders are used to achieve this same relief-like effect.
