  1. hi madhavi
    great work done.
    I also have my share of doubts.
    that is after drawing an outline of the design on marble do we have to stick the stones emboss it using cone as we do in tanjore and then paste gold leaf.
    And is the enamel colour used over the gold leaf?
    please clarify
