The dabu mud is made from locally available black clay, spoiled wheat flour, calcium and limestone. The mud is filtered by foot through a net in order to strain out rocks and minerals – leaving a thick, smooth mud paste. Although this is a type of woodblock printing itself but the blocks to print dabu are distinctly different, with deeper grooves for mud, and wider lines compared to blocks for the traditional Bagru print. After the mud is made, it is ready to be printed. The printer dips the block in the mud and stamps it on the fabric.
