- Series of arduous steps followed over a fortnight is what takes to make Dhokra crafts.
- A rough clay model (mould) is made using clay. This mould is unique for each Dhokra craft because it has to be broken during the process. The rough model is then layered with wax stripes. The waxed model is again layered with clay, keeping the inlets for the metal. Molten metal is poured into these inlets and allowed to cool. As the metal solidifies and takes the place of the wax, the top layer of the clay is removed.
Later the craft is polished to get the desired color.
