Ginsai is a technique of applying transparent or five-color glaze on top of silver foil and baking it.
The characteristic of this technique is that silver foil does not come off and does not rust. Like the Ginsai technique, the tone of the painting is soft and restrained, and an elegant atmosphere can be seen in this technique.
