Uniquely with Shiwa-nuri a special, thicker lacquer, Kuro-roiro is applied undiluted. Interestingly when placed in the Furo, this lacquer acts differently. While absorbing moisture from the air the lacquer contracts and forms black undulations or wrinkles. These wrinkles are what dictate the pattern.
