The creation of Tong Noon involves six stages:
• The area on the piece which is to have the raised pattern is first painted in a matt coloured paint
• The pattern is then drawn on the matt paint by the artist
• The artist then paints over the lines of the pattern using a natural sap from an indigenous tree, which raises the pattern above the underlying piece
• The piece is then fired at 800 degrees centigrade
• The area upon which the pattern has been drawn and raised is then painted with either 18 carat gold paint or with platinum 750 paint (equivalent to 18 carat)
• The piece is then fired a second time at 760 to 770 degrees centigrade

The master craftsman will inspect the pieces several times during their production.
