【What is scarlet copper】
It is one of the traditional techniques used for decorating weapons since ancient times.
【How to make scarlet copper】
It is a very difficult technique to fix a special scarlet film originally in copper by heating pure copper that has been polished cleanly to the "limit" and rapidly cooling it in an aqueous solution of borax with good timing.
It is a natural coloring that does not use a coloring material (coating) such as glaze or paint. Moreover, we do not use beeswax, abrasives etc at all for finishing.
<A word from a writer>
The engraved copper plate that the craftsman practiced does not have the same one. Furthermore, if there is a straight one in one line, there are also bent ones. Sometimes, there are also various practiced things such as Japanese engraving, Western carving, stone clasping, and a unique copper plate to detail.
I will decide what kind of work will be made from the copper plate.
Cut out with a thread saw, scrape with a file, and then polish until it shines shiny with buffs. At this time, the carving may disappear if you do not pay attention.
Finally it will be work of scarlet copper.
The melting point of copper is 1083 ° C, and the surface is covered with a fire at a temperature close to 1,000 ° C.

· Clean polish in pretreatment
· State of fire
· Where to fly (condition of fire on copper plate)
· Identify the color of the metal just before the melting point
· State of aqueous borax solution
· Quickly put in borax (saturated liquid) solution and quickly cool
