Process of making marble inlay. We are inlaying semiprecious stones in three different colors of marble white marble, black marble & green marble. The marble used to inlay the semiprecious stone comes from city of makrana, rajasthan india.
First we cut the marble in different shape example round, octagonal, rectangle, oval & square shape. After cutting the marble we paint the surface of marble with hina(red color) so we can sketch the geometry on the surface of marble. With the help of emery wheel we cut, polish & shape the semiprecious in different forms of flowers, buds, leafs & stems all the cutting of the semiprecious stones are manually cut by the artisans.After cutting the semiprecious stones we assemble them to complete the motif & then the semiprecious stones are placed on the surface of marble so we can trace them on the surface of marble to make the exact size of the cavities once the stones are traced we remove the stones from the surface of marble & then manually we chisels the marble with the diamond chisels & tungsten carbide chisels once the cavities are completed we place the semiprecious stone in the cavities to check the depth of the stones. When we are fully sure that the stone fits well in the cavities we use special kind glue to fix the semiprecious stones into the marble. After completing the inlays into the marble we first rub the surface of marble with sandstone & then we polish the surface of marble with sandpaper which brings the natural shine on the surface of marble & to the semiprecious stone & we use wax polish to make the surface shiny.
