About Lacquer


Lacquer (Sơn ta) is collected from the resin of Lacquer tree (Rhus succedanea), which is planted in some north areas in Vietnam.


Ingredient of lacquer


After a long time containing, lacquer will separate to 4 layers itself:


  1. First layer 第1段

This lacquer is on the top which is the best quality lacquer. This including much of acid uushic which gives dark and glossy brown colour. This lacquer is used to make lacquer paintings, furnitures, cooking tools and other items.


  1. Second layer 第2段

This lacquer is under the first layer which gives medium quality. This lacquer is almost used to make lacquer paintings, furnitures, cooking tools and other items.


  1. Third layer 第3段

This layer is near the bottom which gives low quality. This lacquer is used as glue for wood or bamboo products. We can mix this lacquer with wood powder which is more effective.


  1. Fourth layer 第4段

This layer is lacquer water which is on the bottom. Until now, we have not found the usage of this layer.
