For the production of this film, Oskar Fischinger tinted various layers of hot wax. After cooling, the resulting lump of wax resembled a marble cake. Fischinger then began to cut off slices from the lump, photographing each step. In the resulting animation it seems as if the wax is continually changing its structure and colour. Fischinger also used another animation technique in this film, which involved colouring various liquids in a bath tub, photographing them and animating the changing patterns.
