Lacquer thinned with kerosene is applied from the inner part of the raised bottom using a brush. After the entire basket has been coated, further coating is applied using a large brush. The basket is then left to dry at controlled temperatures. This is repeated 4-5 times. The coating is a technique for enhancing the beauty of the bamboo, more than to show the lacquering.
