    Hi here is the step to make Dokra casting .
    step one is to crush the brick and convert it into fine powder .
    step two is to add wheat husk in proportion of one is to two with brick powder .
    step three is to mix the wheat husk and brick powder in water almost in clay format .
    forth step use the material in the form you want to create the sculpture and dry it in shade preparation of wax
    then a mixture with wax, oil and Dhuna( a type of resin) is made to make the carving work on the product you prepare. It looks black and is very soft. With this mixture designs on the base clay mould is made.
    then make a coil of prepared wax like noodles and start creating designs on the clay model
    Now the entire thing is kept in a pot filled with brass. Then it is put in furnace at a high temperature in order to facilitate the molten brass in the mould having a small hole to take the desired shape.

    Finally remove the clay and polished .this is an example which was done by an dokra artist
