Bidri craft developed in the 14th century C.E. as a part of the Bahamani Sultanate with Persian inputs. This product is made by eight-stage manufacturing process. It starts with the casting of base structure from an alloy of copper and zinc metal. Then white metal wire or sheet inlaying in engraved portion of casting & white metal inlaid part smoothening again by buffing and finally oxidizing (to make it black) of white metal inlaid casting by baking it in liquid mixture of Bidar soil and ammonium chloride. During this oxidising process, only casting becomes black & pure white metal remains shining!
