Process of Making Marble Inlay
1-First we take Plain piece of Marble.
2-We draw the design on it (Copied from Taj mahal)
3-Then with the help of Emery wheel we shape the designs out of semi precious stones used in marble inlay art like Coral, Lapis lazuli, Malachite, Cornelian, Turquoise, Abalone Shell ,Jasper, Mother of Pearl, Etc.
4-We draw the patterns on the slices of the stones then hold them against the Emery wheel and then shape it one by one. Time taken to shape a piece depends on the size and shape. More small pieces takes more time.
5-After that we cut the cavities in the Marble with the help of diamond pointed tools.
6-Then the shaped pieces are glued in the Marble cavities.
7-In the end we polish and finish the piece and then the finished pieces are ready for our collection for our customers
