Gold leaves are extremely thin sheets of gold, known as “Varak”.  First designs are imprinted on the marble object, then the gold leaf sheet is pressed on to the painted motifs while it is still wet and thus the sheet sticks to it.

Then imitation gemstones and coloured glass stones are stuck to motifs which enhance the beautiful artwork with added glitter. This process is finished with the last step of lacquer coating on the object to protect the work and gives it a finishing touch and making it more durable.
