Decorative designs are painted on the surface of the fan. In the case of uwae (dyed or printed figures), the paint is first mixed with glue before being applied onto the paper. Painting is done by paying attention to where the paper will be folded to avoid the final picture from looking distorted. Apart from painting by hand, other techniques such as using a stencil or woodblocks are also employed. Finally, Gold foil or dust are applied to give the fan a splendid finish.
