堰出し友禅・撒糊友禅 Sekidashi-yūzen / Makinori-yūzen
Sekidashi-yūzen and Makinori-yūzen use paste resist to draw the designs. These techniques reverse traditional Kyō-yūzen in which thread-thin lines of paste resist are used to draw the contour lines of patterns that are then vividly painted with dye. By first covering the areas that are to remain white with paste resist using techniques such as sekidashi (outside the lines) or makinori (scattered resist), and then boldly dyeing the entire fabric using techniques such as bokashi gradation, the restrained shades of color that result cause the beauty of the un-dyed white fabric to emerge. This alternative yūzen technique uses white space as a part of the design for gorgeous coloration that is filled with tension.
