An alloy of zinc and copper (in the ratio 1:16) serves as the main raw material of Bidriware. This alloy is referred to as white alloy because the proportion of copper that is mixed in the alloy is very little as compared to zinc. The reason behind this unequal proportion is to produce the right base which can be turned to deep black in the final oxidization process.

Etching is the process of using strong acid or mordant to cut into the unprotected parts of a metal surface to create a design in intaglio in the metal (the original process√ĘÄĒin modern manufacturing other chemicals may be used on other types of material). In pure etching, a metal (usually copper, zinc or steel) plate is covered with a waxy ground which is resistant to acid. The artist then scratches off the ground with a pointed etching needle where he or she wants a line to appear in the finished piece, so exposing the bare metal. The √É¬©choppe, a tool with a slanted oval section, is also used for "swelling" lines. The plate is then dipped in a bath of acid, technically called the mordant (French for "biting") or etchant, or has acid washed over it. The acid "bites" into the metal, where it is exposed, leaving behind lines sunk into the plate. The remaining ground is then cleaned off the plate.

The traditional method of making Paper Mache (Papier mache) starts with waste paper which is soaked in water for several days until it disintegrates. The excess water is drained and the soaked waste paper, cloth, rice straw and copper soleplate are mixed to form a pulp. This mixture is placed in a mold and left to dry for two to three more days. On the drying of pulp, the shape is cut away from the mold in two halves and then glued again. The surface is coated with the layer of glue and gypsum, rubbed smooth with a stone or baked piece of clay and pasted with layers of tissue paper. A base color is painted on, and a design is added free hand .The object is then sandpapered or burnished and is finally painted with several coats of lacquer.
Repousse & Chasing
Repousse or repoussage is a metalworking technique in which a malleable metal is ornamented or shaped by hammering from the reverse side to create a design in low relief. Chasing is the opposite technique to Repousse, and the two are used in conjunction to create a finished piece. It is also known as embossing. Repousse refers to pushing the metal out from the back side of the piece - Chasing is pushing the metal down from the front. There is a lot of back and forth between Repousse and Chasing when creating a relief. As the metal is moved around it becomes stiff, or work hardened. The metal will crack if the stresses are not relieved.

A piece of slate stone is picked first and then sized according to the concept. The stone some time required finishing on the top as well. The artisan would then place his imagination on the slate in a rough sketch form. In second stage the artisan needs to adopt the carving techniques to get the sketch getting its desired shape and form either by carving a line out or removing some back ground portion by which the design become prominent. The challenge with the artisan is get the sketch design to the foreground by carving and scrapping some portion out of slate. There is no use of color in this art form. Polished slate would appear near black or dark gray in color and the carved, scrapping out portion would appear a little rough on surface and light gray in color. It√ĘÄôs phenomenal that the artisan still manages to bring out his imagination in a picture perfect way.

Inlay is a decorative technique of inserting pieces of contrasting, often colored materials into depressions in a base object to form patterns or pictures that normally are flush with the matrix. In a wood matrix, inlays commonly use wood veneers, but other materials like shells, mother-of-pearl, horn or ivory may also be used. Colored stones inlaid in white or black marbles, and inlays of precious metals in a base metal matrix are other forms of inlay. Master craftsmen who make custom knives continue a tradition of ancient techniques of inlaying precious metals; additionally, many new techniques which use contemporary tools have also been developed and utilized as well by artisans.
In India many artists make this rare kind of wire art using copper wire and this is yet very different from the conventional wire art which we see across the world. In all the wire art depicted on Komoli.com, the artist has sketched his imagination on soft board laminated with cotton cloth using copper wire. The copper wire has been passed through the surface of the soft board many a time and finally the sketch would come alive. To decorate the sketch further, spiral shape of copper wire has been created and placed appropriately. To give the sketch more realistic and make it alive, copper wire of different thickness would be used to depict different strokes of the lines. Imagination & Excellence!!!!!
