The raw materials play an important role in his quality control ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป especially the ratio to mixing the resist โž• wax, as well as the heat temperature โ™จ๏ธ

Not just that, there is a detailed patience & being skillful of holding the cap right, applying the hot โ™จ๏ธ mixed wax to the cap & then hand ๐Ÿคš๐Ÿป printing the waxโž•resin resist to the cloth
