Tim Nguyen Lacquer Paintings
Vietnamese born Tim Nguyen Tim was so inspired by Hawaii he decided to make it his home and devote himself to painting the beautiful people of Hawaii. His paintings are filled with strong emotion, combining is love of Hawaii and his Vietnamese heritage.
Tim Nguyen learned techniques of Vietnam's best lacquer artists. He uses up to ten layers of lacquer paint and a variety of mixed media, including duck, chicken and goose eggshells, seashells, glass, sand, and clay. Tim paints over Silver leaf to create deep, lustrous colors. He then applies gold leaf as an accent. Finally, Tim rubs and polishes different parts of the painting to bring out the desired colors. Since different colors are in different layers, Tim’s rubbing must be done with great care, using fine sandpaper and a mix of charcoal powder and human hair. It takes Tim several months to create each a lacquer painting
