In order to create a mottled effect, Tokyo Yuzen uses liquid paste, unlike Kyoto Yuzen, which sprinkles dry pellets of paste (makinori) over the fabric. Other methods of creating a mottled effect include tapping on paste with a pad (tatakinori) and creating paste dots using a tipped funnel (tenbyo). Son of a pattern master, Takahashi Kan is a Yuzen dyer born after WWII who trained under Nakamura Katsuma and Yamada Mitsugi. He creates his designs by placing drops of paste one by one.
