Dhokra making process has several steps:
- Making clay model
- Giving designs of bee-wax on dried clay
- Applying two layers of clay on wax design
- Creating channels for molten brass
The model is heated, then the inner layer of beeswax melts and escapes through the channels, consequently creating a space in between. This, therefore, acts as a mould. Next, hot liquid brass is poured into the mould through the channels. It is allowed to cool until the brass completely solidifies. Then the outer mud layer is broken to obtain a brass model. After some final finishing touches, the exquisite Dhokra art is ready!
