Laquer painting is a much more involved process than the traditional oil or watercolor form. Lacquer painters must use sap from Lacquer trees to hold a cloth covering onto their wooden canvass. They paint the outlines of the picture in hot lacquer and apply the colors one layer at a time, letting each dry out before the next is applied. Modern lacquer painters in Vietnam have learned to infuse substances like crushed egg shells, gold foil, and plants into their artwork, allowing for a unique expression of creativity.
However in Burma, infusions of gold foil were already found in lacquerware centuries ago, though they were usually reserved for royal paintings and religious art. Other materials such as animal bone, colored glass, and bamboo are used depending on where the lacquer designs are applied to. Colored glass is infused into lacquer paintings on thrones, Buddhist images, and caskets, among others. Bamboo, on the other hand, is infused to lacquer paintings which decorate vases, tables, chairs, and chests.
Lacquer painting is as much a part of the ancient city of Bagan as are the more famous thousands of pagodas which cover travel brochures for Asia. For centuries, a majority of people in Bagan have been involved in lacquer ware, passing the tradition down through the years. Currently there is a government-sponsored institute in Bagan dedicated to the recruitment and training of lacquerware artists and the demand for Burmese and Vietnamese laquerware among art circles in the West continues to rise.
