Maki-e, literally "sprinkled powder," is a general term for the process by which figurative or abstract designs are created by sprinkling pigment or metallic powder onto the surface of Urushi lacquer while it is still wet. There are many varieties of Maki-e, such as Tame-sukashi, Raden, and Chinkin.

The Camellia flower is built up using black Urushi lacquer with the Sumi-ko "heaping up" technique as is seen on the Sumi-ko Dragon or the Sumi Cherry Blossoms. This provides a textural element which contrasts with the smooth surface of the rest of the pen.
Inside the petals the pistil is made with the Nashiji (matte finishing) technique and sprinkled with gold powders.
