Indian silver was worked in the répoussée method.
After the piece had been made to the required shape, it was filled with a mixture of black wax and resin, which supported the silver and allowed it to be decorated from the outside.
The resin mix absorbed the shock of the hammers and punches used to form the patterns, and was easily removed, when the design was finished, by heating it to melting point.
The outside was then cleaned, and the decorative details burnished.
