Marble painting is a traditional art of India. Marble painting, is done on a thin tile of marble. The surface has to be very smooth, so as to achieve better finishing. In this painting, pure gold leaves are used to add to the richness of the art work. Relief work is done on the places where ever gold leaves have to be pasted. A very thin marble tile is selected for this type of work, so that, it is not heavy. A sketch is first drawn on to the marble tile. In the portions where gold work is required, fine relief work is done. The relief work is very thin and intricate. This has to dry completely. The gold leaves are then pasted on the relief work. Care has to be taken while pasting the gold leaves, as the leaves may loose their luster due to glue coming over them.
