>The lengthy procedures of dry lacquer shell technique starting with clay that sculpted into the approximate shape of the figure, coated layers of sap mixed with sawdust, covered with several layers of hemp cloth and secured with raw lacquer. Note that each layer had to harden before another layer could be added. After the layering and drying process that takes some months, then the clay mold would be removed, leaving a dry lacquer hollow shell by and large resilient from environment and climate change.
