Moradabad brass is valued for its golden lustre,is sand casted and the various levels of production are handled by specialized craftsmen and engravers have their own workshops. The entire process along with ornamentation usually takes 4 to 6 weeks. Kalamkari, Urdu for carving and pen work, is done with controlled strokes of the thapi, mallet, on fine pointed chisels. The engraving is shallow, called naqqashi or sada kalam, and deep engraving, called khudai or sia kalam. In khudai the designs are complicated, and the depressions are filled in with cultured lac. The lac sticks are heated and applied to the metal and the design gleams in golden tracery against the translucent jewel-cultured lac. Naqqashi is occasionally done on a tinned surface. Traditional styles are mostly floral arabesques. A traditional product is the paandaan, come in all shapes and sizes and are made by casting heavy-gauge sheet metal, either copper or brass. The hinges are physically made as well. Cast pieces are finished by sandpapering on the lathe.

Natural products such as wood, metal and leather are meant for hardy use and products such as furniture, objects, decorative items etc. , have for ever been used by the poor and the rich, the only variation being that of refinement and embellishment. These can be exposed to moisture, water and sun but must always be dried well and then keep free of dust and grime. The colors will always transform or fade when exposed to the elects and that is a great part of the charm of natural products.
