Khataee motifs, one of the basic designs of Iranian decorative arts is a combination of a tree with flowers, leaves, and buds. Bird & flower motifs is a combination of flowers and birds flying around them. The more intricate and complicated motifs yield the more expensive final product.

Preparation

Besides the preparation of paint cream, the desired objects which are mainly made of copper are created by hammering and forming. After forming the objects, they should be cleaned thoroughly prior to being covered with white enamel coating. The cleanness of the surface is very important at this stage since very minor dirt or even hand oil or moisture could cause a crack in the final product.

Baking

The enameled object is baked in the furnace at around 700° in a few stages. Once the object is baked and cooled down, the pattern of each item is transferred to the surface of object. This is usually done by drawing on the paper first and punching small holes near to each other on the lines drawn on the paper. Graphite powder is usually used to mark on the metal surface through paper tiny holes.
