The cotton fabric is stretched across a pathiya, the low wooden printing table, the dabu mud paste is printed onto the motif with the appropriate colour reserving datta block. Once dried, the dabu mud hardens and when the fabric is dipped into a hot dye liquid, it serves its purpose of protecting the base colours of the printed motif from the additional colour.
