掛け軸 Kakejiku Partial Remount

This scroll was one of two ordered by a customer.

If you would like to order a custom scroll there are three ways to get started: 1. Go to my shopping site at 2. Download my scroll design workbook from my website at to read about the concepts behind kakejiku or wallscroll design. 3. E-mail to me directly at 

This was a scroll acquired by his father and he wanted to have it remounted. This scroll was in the sandan Hyougu style with a paper Ten and Chi. The Hassou was completely removed from the scroll and the paper was ripped terribly bad. There was also some stain on the Chuumawashi.

So I took off about 5 bun on the top and the bottom of the chuumawashi to keep dimensions consistent. I then mounted some Khaki cloth that I had on the drying board previously for another project. I then put another layer of Sourauchi on the work and let it dry, it came out pretty nicely.
