Black Gold Paint Painting is a traditional Thai art form. Among the applied arts, which have been practiced by the Thai for a long time, the ornamentation with gold leaf drawings on black, and rarely on red lacquer is significant to decorate various objects for religious or daily use. The object is coated layer upon layer with thitsee and thayo to make a smooth surface, polished and engraved with intricate designs, commonly using red, green and yellow colours on a red or black background.
