Then the chosen designs or patterns are engraved on the work by different chisels. After the engraving is done, tar is removed from the work and the chiseled area is covered with charcoal powder and black lubricating oil.

Finally the work is wiped clean and the black lines of the engraved designs appear on the surface of the work.
