Greetings,

I have been using a black gloss cashew lacquer with good results but I have also been looking for a clear/transparent top coat in either urushi or cashew but haven't been able to find what I'm looking for.
I have access to both types of lacquer. I understand there are transparent urushi but they all seem to have some tint or color, will this affect the base color it is applied over?


I am also looking for a black with a matte finish instead of glossy for painting samegawa.
would I use Jyoukeshi Urushi for this or Kuroroi Urushi?

Thank you in advance for any information provided.

-Josh

Kensen san, thank you for the good information.

I have looked at both sites and I'm still not sure which is the urushi for tsuka on right. I am looking for black, no gloss but can be polished to gloss. thank you very much.
which item is like tsuka on right? - http://sugimoto-japan.ocnk.net/product-list/30

Stan Paul, I believe the oyatsubu is the area of samegawa with the large or central nodes.
