The process of making Dokra art involves a non-ferrous metal casting technique that uses the lost wax casting method. The artist creates a clay model of the desired sculpture, which is then coated with a mixture of bee's wax and resin. The wax-coated model is covered with a layer of clay, which is then heated to harden the clay and melt the wax, leaving a cavity in the shape of the original clay model. Molten metal, typically a mixture of brass, copper, and bronze, is poured into the cavity and allowed to cool and solidify. The clay mold is then broken to reveal the final metal sculpture, which is further polished and finished by the artist.
