While undertaking the marble painting, first of all the marble base is prepared by coating the marble with a neutral color and sponged a couple of times for attaining the right effect. The painter then draws the images with great specificity. This procedure is then followed by adding color and at times gold dust, gold leaves, jewels and lacquer too. The colors used in marble painting are made out of natural vegetables and mineral dyes. The use of gold and precious stones is optional and depends upon the manufacturer or the buyer if the marble painting is made according to the order. The use of lacquer adds a permanent finish to the marble painting and enhances its life value.
