As the individual artisans lay the wax designs onto small sections of fabric, they incorporate features that reflect their moods and interests, focusing on the characteristic flora and fauna of Balinese island life. Working apart in various regions of the island, they create fabric 'paintings' that modulate from day to day and season to season. (For example, cloth painted during the rainy season in Bali will have colors that are more muted and softer than those made during the dry season.) Style and details of pattern change according to the particular designer, and subtle color variations reflect the small batches of fabric and dyes that are processed at any one time.
