After the final coat, if you want to finish the lacquerware so that it will become even more beautiful, you should use the technique of gold lacquer work or gold-inlaid lacquerware.
Gold lacquer work involves first painting pictures and then sprinkling gold powders, for example, when the lacquer is half dried. When you use the gold-inlaid lacquerware technique, first carve patterns with a fine cutting tool and then rub gold foil into the grooves.
