There are two kinds of dough figurines. One is made for collection purpose and the other is used for food. The dough used to make these two kinds of figurines is also different. For collection, the dough is made of refined wheat flour, glutinous rice flour, salt, antiseptic, and sesame oil. For edible purpose, wheat starch and cornstarch are needed to make the dough.

The handicraftsman can turn a piece of dough into a vivid figurine very quickly with the techniques of kneading, twisting, rubbing and lifting. Of course, a small knife, tiny bamboo needle and other tools are used to trim the figurine. Eventually, a perfect dough figurine is made.

Today, the dough figurines sold on the streets are made for entertaining purpose. They are not edibile.
