Making traditional lacquer artworks requires longtime and many stages. It usually takes several months to complete. Lacquer comes from a tree grown in Phu Tho province. First, the artist treats the wooden board surface to make it smooth, then he applies coloured lacquer on it. The artist may mixed it with other materials such as gold and silver dust, egg shell, haliotis diversicolor shell… A lacquer painting has many layers, each of which is to be dried before being applied another layer until the artist feels satisfied with what he wants to express. To make the surface smooth, the artist use hair to polish it. The traditional lacquer painting looks darker and deeper than the lacquer one made of Japanese or industrial lacquer.
