It is not a vinyl wrap, but a wrap made by soaking beeswax in a cloth while people are calling for deplasticization in this world. Beeswax is a refined product of the honeycomb. It is a little yellowish and smells like a candle.
This wrap is an eco-friendly product that can be used repeatedly, and because it uses beeswax, it is a natural antibacterial material that also adjusts water content as a breathing wrap. After use, just wash it with water and it can be used repeatedly for half a year to a year. It is sensitive to heat and cannot be used for oily foods, raw meat and fish, and highly acidic foods.
It is one of the three major Yuzen, Kaga Yuzen, Kyo Yuzen, and Tokyo Yuzen, and is one of the traditional Japanese kimono dyeing methods. Curved and simplified patterns such as flora and fauna and landscapes called Yuzen patterns are colored on cloth and fabrics based on the five colors of enji, indigo, ocher, grass, and ancient purple. In addition, by using a technique called thread glue, adjacent colors are prevented from mixing with each other.
A picture has already been drawn on the fabric with thread glue. I will add colors to this using the enclosed 5 colors and black and white. By mixing white with any color, the color does not bleed. In addition, we will also introduce techniques such as outer blurring and worm-eaten, which are unique to Kaga Yuzenn. Outer blur is one in which the inside is thin and the color becomes darker toward the outside. Insect-eating is to draw traces of insect-eating on the leaves and flowers drawn on the pattern. After applying the color, dry it with a dryer to fix the color, and then use water to remove the thread glue and then dry it again with a dryer.
After this, the cloth is coated with beeswax.

Kaga Yuzen dyeing is like a so-called coloring book. For the time being, I will add colors while looking at the YouTube model, but for the first time, I can't be like a craftsman. In my head, I wanted to make the color lighter, I intended to put the color firmly at the boundary of the color, but it was light, and the gradation did not go well. However, it's fun to be able to concentrate very much during the two hours of dyeing. In addition, I still have some paint left, so I would like to draw something.
For the beeswax coating, it is necessary to note that the beeswax suddenly melts and sticks out to the surroundings. I thought I had laid the newspaper firmly under the cloth, but beeswax was scattered on and under the ironing board. Also, I got a little on the iron. Once this beeswax is attached, it can only be scraped off.
At the time of this beeswax coating, it was written that it smelled good of beeswax and the yuzu oil used for this raw material, but I only smelled beeswax because my nose was strange or something.
I usually wrap wraps when I heat them, so I thought it would be useless, but there are other times when I want to use them. The warmth of my hands deforms and fixes the shape, so I tried replacing the lid of the salad bowl and wrapping the half-eaten yokan. It's fun to transform the shape and fit it exactly into the vessel. Besides, the picture is cute, so you will feel more excited when you use it!
