Figures and statues in a variety of shapes and sizes are made using papier mache and plaster of Paris. Plaster of Paris or paper solution is poured into rubber moulds; it sets in an hour and can then be separated from the mould. The figure is then finished with paints. Status of gods and goddesses, birds, animals, toys, and other decorative items are crafted. The craft is concentrated in Banaskantha district, Ahmedabad, Rajkot, and Junagadh.
