  Egypt - Modern Egyptian products
by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Favorite thing: Potters of Egypt rumpled red silt, lead it up to the dough, formed various vessels. Then products were dried or burnt. At roasting it turned out cream or light grey crock. So potters of Egypt work and today ?

Depending on a kind of component (grains of quartz sand, crushed granite, diorite, basalt, marble) it turned out artificial rocks simulating natural. Statues and figurines of gods, pharaohs and priests were made by bulk way. Color slicker it was poured in the form, part of water was absorbed by a material of the form. After full harden into a stone a casting was released and lead up to a final view.

And arrogant descendants cannot distinguish an artificial stone from a natural stone!
