A fabric dyeing technique in which the pattern is first drawn with melted beeswax onto the cloth with a metal tool. The cloth is immersed in dye. The areas covered by the wax are not affected by the dye, creating a pattern that can be seen when the wax is removed by boiling the cloth or ironing the wax so it melts from the cloth. Wax and dye applications may be repeated for color variation.
