In my technique, I first cut washi (traditional Japanese paper) into a variety of floral leaf shapes, and after drawing a rough ornamental design, I position the cut motifs. With a thick brush I penetrate the paint and then remove the washi cutouts and draw lines with a brush. For my paint ingredients, I collect and refine iron pigments from my local neighborhood.
