The artist produces the paper by cutting bamboo trees into sections and slicing those into thin sticks, which are soaked in water for a night and then cooked in solvent lime for half a day. Cooking the sticks makes them softer, so they can be beaten and grilled into bamboo pulp.
The pulp is mixed with water and poured into a mould to create a sheet of paper, which is then dried under the sun. Finally, Bang makes a graphic on the surface.
The paper is used for many purposes. Thanks to its durability, people use truc chi to make tea house walls and room dividers; Bang is currently working on projects to illuminate the paper, which also serves as material for painting, embroidery and calligraphy. Each truc chi paper can even be seen as an artwork in itself because Bang creates unique graphics on each sheet.
