Lacquered doukake

I'm really curious, how do they make these lacquered doukake? Or has anyone else tried to make one on their own? I know In Kyle's book it shows you how to make one but it's for fabric.

You lacquer over the fabric.

Any special kind of lacquer? I like the lacquered doukake, but I don't like the patterns enough for how expensive they are …

Does anyone know if Kyle's book suggests a specific lacquer? I don't have access to my copy right now. I would recommend something a little flexible or it would crack.

It doesn't talk about lacquering the doukake at all. :(

The book only tells you how to make a fabric type. I have a doukake which is hard like plastic, makes me think that they have molds for it

Many laquered doukake use a plastic base.

Some doukake are then finished with urushi. Some use a clear-coat/resin finish.

I am unsure about the store versions

Is it possible to make one at home? I've been thinking for quite some time.
