Xipi

This is one of the decoration techniques in Chinese art of lacquer known as Xipi, 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.
