The process of calligraphy is simple yet intricate. It has the following main steps:
• Processing of stone/paper
Processing of stone/paper: The paper or stone are cut in desired shapes. Thereafter the surface is smoothen.
Writing: Artists use calligraphy styles to write and paint different verses of the holy Quran. The art of Quitabat is taught along with religious texts since the childhood in madrasas and advance schools.
Finishing: Once the writing or painting is done on the paper, it is turned over and burnished with a piece of stone called Hakik ka pathar. This gives a shine on the surface.
The stone pieces are smoothened using different buffs.
