  • Publication number: 20180281507
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a decorative object, which enables manufacturing of a decorative object, on which a random concavo-convex structure is formed, such as non-glossy finish, with a uniform product appearance, while maintaining operating efficiency is described. The method for manufacturing a decorative object includes the steps of coating a concavo-convex surface having a concavo-convex structure with a coating solution including a resin component, transferring the concavo-convex structure to a transfer surface to form a resin layer having the transfer surface, and to obtain a transfer member comprising the resin layer, and decorating a surface for decoration by pressing the transfer surface of the transfer member against the surface for decoration including a thermoplastic resin while heating.
