Crafts used in making this product
- To carve this craft, tracing of the desired design is done on the wood-piece using zinc stencil. The excess wood is taken off and layers of work are created. Now the wood is carved using various hand tools and the carved pattern appears to be raised out.
The technical word used for this raised part is called relief. Usually the carving is in low relief (known as chilai). High relief is also done where the pattern is carved out deeper (known as takai). At times the carving goes very deep bringing a see-through to the craft.
The finer details are given to the wood using fine chisels. Lastly, the piece is finished by sanding, polishing and varnishing.
