Seven diffent materials found in the nature, such as quartz, kaolin, chalk and sand are milled. Water and mud are mixed until they are consistent. Desired objects are shapped by cutting pieces from prepared dough they are left to dry. Pieces that reach leather harness from dough consistency are lined. The lining process allows dried objects to turn into a pure white color. The white background is the most important feature that separates Turkish tiles from other ceramics. Then the parts that are lined are cooked slowly for almost a day in an oven that is approximetely 900 0 C. This process is called biscuits of first cooking. The desired patterns are drawn with cobalt or Indian ink and inside of the patterns are painted with desired colors.
