Relatively rough Gold Nashiji powders are sprinkled over the background on the barrel. The result is less flashy as Nashiji powders create less glittery results than Hirame powders (they do not polish lacquer completely). Nashiji powders are chosen in order to express the pebbles in the bottom of the water.

A water strider on the cap was created with Togidashi Makie technique. The base for the title (which separates the red part from the pink part) was burnished with the water strider at the same time when the water slider was processed. After the process was complete, green water weed on the title was raised.
