For Lac of a Better Name

Posted by on August 6, 2011

take a bow

You know that the toys are carved from wood, painted with lac (which is made from tree sap), and polished with tree leaves. The thing I haven’t been able to convey, however, is just how awesome and unique this finish looks. It’s honestly unlike anything I’ve ever seen. It has a depth to it, a shimmering quality that changes based on the light. The closest thing I could possibly compare it to is looking at Jupiter.

I made a video of me playing with one of the pieces to try to convey what it looks like. I just wish I could convey how awesome it feels.
