Basically, a matrix (mold) was carved intaglio to give the proper shape or form to material introduced into it. The matrices were made from papier mache-and were placed upon short posts in places where water was dripping from the ceiling.

After a number of years, they were filled with the lime and minerals in the water, and at long last, the cameo were formed. A finishing touch-up to the carving was done to reach their final beauty, producing a genuine Antique cameo of priceless value.
