How to use Crystal Lacquer

3 Basic Steps

3-D Crystal Art is very easy, you can create a professional finish. 

Just follow these "3 Basic Steps." You can use these techniques to any application.

  • Step 1, Trace & Fill;

  • Step 2, Raise higher;

  • Step 3, Brush.

Step 1: Trace & Fill in


(1-1) Trace the section of an image. (1-2) Fill in.
Repeat (1-1) and (1-2) for each section. Make sure you leave spaces between each section. Space prevents 3-D Crystal Lacquer from running together, which then creates the distinctive 3-D effects.


Step 2: Build up

After the first coat dries, reapply 3-D Crystal Lacquer over the areas you already raised to make a deeper 3D Effect.


Step 3: Brush

(3-1) Pour 3-D Crystal Lacquer into a small container (3-2) Use brush or cotton swab for application. (3-3) Moisten brush or cotton swab with water before diping into 3-D Crystal Lacquer.

(3-4) Apply 3-D Crystal Lacquer over the entire image, including foreground, background and all spaces you made in Step1. This process is not raising but connecting all sections of images with thin coats

6). After you use 3-D Crystal Lacquer,
remove the applicator tip and wash with
running warm water. Store the tip in safe place.
Replace the long cap back onto the
spout to keep lacquer from drying up.

How to prevent the tip from clogging.

1). While you are using 3-D Crystal Lacquer, let it sit
(tip side down) on a moist paper towel in a
container. This will prevent the tip from becoming
dried & clogged while in used. (Fig.5)
2). When you are finished, wash the tip with runningwarm water making sure the inside is clean. You can blow into the tip to clear all water from inside the metal tube.

Basic Technique of 3-D Crystal Lacquer

1-A) Outline image Outline every image you want to raise, and let it dry.

2). Fill inside the outlined image.(Keep adequate spaces between the image.)

If the sections are too close to each other, skip over one section to the next and apply the lacquer. (This will prevent from merging.) After the lacquer is dried, go back to skipped section and apply lacquer. * In case of making mistakes or air bubbles get in the 3-D Crystal Lacquer, wipe them out with Q-Tip as soon as possible. Then reapply the lacquer.

3). Raise images. You can reapply 3-D Crystal Lacquer over the dry areas to raise levels. (Please do not overlap between the images!) * Use Q-Tip tocorrect overlaps*

Outline Only



Advanced Techniques for Picture Images

(1). Wavy images such as flag or fabric, are raised
wherever the color appears to lightest.

Raise the lighter colored areas

(2). Rounded images are raised the highest in areas that curve towards you. Areas that recede or are away from you can be outlined only.


(3). Use Soft-bristled paintbrush to apply a final layer to the spaces between the images.

(4). Background images. If a background image is black or white, it shouldn’t be lacquered. If a background has strong strokes, apply a thin coat of lacquer with a painting brush, following the brush stroke on the picture.
