Papier – Mache craft is paper combined with natural glue which is soaked in water for 10 to 20 days, then hammered into a thick pulp mash, which is left to dry partially. Each piece is then given a form by hand, putting successive layers of the paper pulp around a central core for basic shaping. When thoroughly dried, a base compound is applied for extra strength and is further smoothened by sand stone. Next a thin rice paper is applied on top with cloth reinforcement in the corners and on the base to protect against expansion or contraction in different climatic conditions. The surface of the article is smoothened with a special stone made of hard burnt brick called "karkod". Then the desired pattern is hand drawn on the surface and completed with an array of colours which results in smooth and attractive products.
The Paper Machie proudcts are hand crafted and hand painted in very fine and intricate paisley design. On colour base, intricate design has been drawn in different shades which adds to the beauty of the product. Fine detailing of the intricate design can be well seen with magnifying glass. Water based colours and natural pigments have been used in the product. Finally the product is coated with lacquer which protects it from water and gives it extra durability.
