Lacquered wood Technique
Turned wood ornamented with coloured lacquer. Very little painting on wood is now done, and the lacquer surface obtained by pressing what is virtually a stick of coloured sealing-wax on an object revolving in the lathe is a harder and more solid covering then any paint. The heat developed by friction melts the lacquer. Further friction with the dry stem of a palm-leaf, held endwise, and a final application of an oiled rag of muslin, polish a coat of colour which resist dust, the great heat of the hot weather, and the damp of the rains. But there are many refinements in this most simple art.
