Two pictures showing what appears to be a sort of grainy molded wax or plastic, and an cloisonne elephant with what feels like some sort of polymer clay or something. Underneath the tough outer layer is what behaves exactly like red wax - I can easily poke a needle into it, them smooth away the hole and other marks with my fingernail.

No idea what this stuff is, but it's not lacquer.
