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.

堰出し友禅・撒糊友禅は染色技法で、代表的な京友禅の技法とは異なり、糸目を使用せずに染められます。模様の外側に糊や蝋を置き、染液が地の部分に出ないように防染して、​内側に彩色していきます。輪郭線の無い大胆な発色が特徴です。
