Nakagawa discusses his method of inlay that provides for smoother surfaces, than inlays relying on glue. He discusses the science of mixing metals into compound metals, in which he must decide which metals to combine, and determine compounds of minerals and the chemical reactions needed to achieve desired colors. His method creates oxidized layers and the desired color changes without interfering in oxidation. His video also shows samples of his work and process.
