The indigo is to be powdered, and put into warm water with sulphate of iron, in quantity twice the weight of the indigo, to which is also to be added, the same weight of fresh-burnt lime. The water should be only sufficient to mix it thick at first; keep it stirred; and, as it becomes dissolved and green under the surface, increase the water, often stirring and trying the mixture, by putting in a pattern between the stirrings, at some hours distance, between each pattern, and increasing the water: in twenty-four hours it will be fit for use.
