This process is the same as the last; that is, after scarlet; but the wool is not to be alumed: in some cases, a little tartar and cochineal is added.

Observe, that the cochineal and tartar being added, the previous preparation must be according to the fulness or faintness of the shade wanted, whether of buff, peachy or flesh, all of which require, essentially, the same process. By such means, a pattern of any shade, compounded of red and yellow, from scarlet to the weakest buff and flesh, may be produced.
