This historic book may have numerous typos, missing text or index. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. 1884. Not illustrated. Excerpt: ... To Dye Yellow. Put two table-spoonfuls of ground alum, and one tea-spoonful of cream of tartar into a pint of water. When perfectly dissolved and boiling, put in the feathers, hackles, or hair, and simmer for half an hour. Take them from this mordant bath, and put them in the yellow dye, made by infusing a tablespoonful of ground turmeric in a pint of water, and immersed until the color is extracted.

To Dye Crimson. Boil the materials to be dyed in a solution of alum and cream of tartar, for half an hour; bruise two table-spoonfuls of cochineal, and simmer them in water until the color is extracted. Take the materials from the alum water, and boil them in the cochineal liquor until you have the color you wish. "Wash them in clean water, and if feathers, dress them until dry. To Dye Brown. Brown may be procured by boiling walnut shells to a strong solution, and of a more ch...
