When the silk has received the annatto ground three shades less than for auroa, the safflower preparation must be ready, and turned by the solution of tartar as before described; the silk must also be well washed from the annatto ground, that the alkali used with the annatto may not counteract the tartar of the safflower, a bath of which must be prepared as strong as possible, through which the silk must be worked six or seven times: for a full poppy it is necessary to pass the silk through four or five such liquors. Poppy is the deepest colour which can be done vidth the safflower. It has been before observed, that the liquors from the poppy, if used directly, will serve for orange, cherry, flesh, &c.

Archil, as described for crimson, with cochineal for wools as before described, is to be used on some occasions. In other cases some patterns have no ground of annatto.
