These shades are extremely various, and are dyed without any preparation with alder-bark, red sanders, sumach, galls, madder, &c. and under a boiling heat, although it is occasionally necessary to boil some of the ingredients together previous to the dyeing: for instance, red sanders will give its colour out best when boiled with galls, alderbark, sumach, &c. Cam-wood, bar-wood, walnut rinds, roots, &c. are used in some of these shades, the varieties of which are almost infinite. Practice is required in this branch of dyeing equal to or beyond any other.
