A skilled fine arts artist is creating a
by applying the outlines of a Thai mythological figure in a ‘pasty resist’ onto the
of a window panel at
Wat Hua Lampong (fig.).
Later the whole surface will be coated with a resin and
gold leaf applied, which
will stick on the outlined
pattern. Then the surface is gently washed with water removing the resist and
leaving the gold leaf fixed to the design.
