  • Xipi is one of the unique decoration techniques in Chinese art of lacquer, literally 'rhinoceros skin'. The patterns are created through a thick layer of lacquer which is manipulated into an uneven surface. Thin layers of multi-coloured layer will then be applied to the surface. After repeating polishing, the desired fluid patterns will be revealed.
