Abstract Der Schmied Ajamé Abdallahmi fertigt bei Fada eine Messingfigur: Herstellen einer Pferdemist-Ton-Mischung, Formen des Gußstückes in Wachs, Auftragen einer weichen und einer festen Tonschicht, Erhitzen und Ausschmelzen des Wachses, Erhitzen der Gußform und eines angesetzten Behälters mit Messingstücken, Eingießen des flüssigen Messings, Abschlagen des Tons nach Erkalten und Feinbearbeitung.
A mixture of crushed clay and horse's dung is mixed with water and kneaded. This pulp is later used to case the wax models. A model cast piece is ormed in wax. It shows the figure of a camel with saddle, intended as a headdecoration. On the wax model a thin layer of clay is first layed on to fill out the fine indentures and then a coat of firmer clay follows. The next day the dried form is heated, the wax melted out. A crucible with metal is fitted through a clay rim on the cast. The cast is heated in the forge. As soon as the metal becomes liquid it is poured from the crucible into the cast. The cooled-off cast is smashed and the finished castings carefully elaborated on.
