The roghan adhesive paste is made of linseed oil and other additives that are cooked together till the required consistency is reached. Yellow pigment is added for gold printing, while white pigment is added for silver printing. After applying the adhesive to the material either by blocks, stencil or by brush, the roghan is allowed to rest for a few hours till it is semi-set.
