Description

This brass spraygun is cylindrical in shape with a cone on top and a nozzle attached. A handle is attached to the side. The spraygun was invented by Dr. Koichi Yamada and produced by Kenji Nishikawa of Shikoku Kasei Co. Ltd. as a solution to how to achieve a "Kyoto style" wall effect in The Japanese House without using traditional materials or going to great expense. A colored and textured paint/finish was poured into the spraygun for use on the walls of The Japanese House.
