    • Processing: The process starts with collection of clay and mixing it with rice husk making the figure strong. In following step, wax strands are coiled upon the core. Artisans use a mixture of beeswax, resins and nut oil to make soft dough. Fine riverbed soil and coal dust mixture form the first layer on the wax model; it makes the perfect inner wall of the structure. Then red-soil and rice husk mixture is applied to it, this helps in the toughening of the outer surface. When the model is complete, two holes are made at one end and wax sticks are put into these holes to provide a channel for the molten inner wax and air bubbles upon heating. The piece is sundried and then fired in the ‘Bhatti’ (traditional kiln); the wax melts and comes out of the mould. When the entire wax has come out of the model, molten brass is poured in through the same holes. The mold is then put to cool off and the brass inside becomes solid. When the artisan begins to chip off the clay mold, the brass within can be seen having taken the desired form.
