THE CREATION OF THREE-DIMENSIONAL THAI LACQUER WORK FROM EPOXY RESIN WITH DRAWING TECHNIQUES
The creation of three-dimensional Thai lacquer works from epoxy resin with drawing techniques article is a part of the study of the use of epoxy resin with a pointed tool drawing technique to create a three-dimensional Thai lacquer work. The study aims to explore the creation of three-dimensional Thai lacquer work from epoxy resin with drawing techniques and to compare the characteristics of the three-dimensional and the traditional Thai lacquer works. This research is creative research in Thai arts with the following procedures: Surface preparation, perforated preparation, realgar solution preparation, drawing with realgar solution, gilding, lacquering, shading with drawing techniques, and coating the surface with epoxy resin.
The research results showed that the use of epoxy resin in drawing made three-dimensional Thai lacquer work looked different from traditional work. In other words, the three-dimensional Thai lacquer work could clearly express the close, medium, and far perspectives. There was an overlap of each layer of the pattern and the three-dimensional picture. Moreover, work that was coated with epoxy resin was shinier and more durable than traditional work.
