Proceed in aluming, &c. the same as for other colours; the weld liquor being stronger, some logwood must be added. When the weld and logwood are exhausted a very small quantity of each must be added, which green the liquor, when the silk being passed through, a greenish olive is produced.

A reddish olive requires fustic, instead of logwood and pearl-ash, both of these being omitted.

Fustic gives a colour commonly called drab-olive upon cloth, because generally made to match with olive, this is commonly redder than the preceding.
