I long for having a good command of kolrosing.
I think kolrosing has simple beauty
Birch, basswood, aspen are ideal.
Coffee or cinnamon powder for coloring.
My pine burl kuksa is
the worst for kolrosing.
Course grain, rough surface
and gunk resin...
With an awl,
Sap of the lacquer tree
instead of coffee powder.
Barely straight lines are engraved.
My face turn red with shame.
