Steep the hair in water, in which a small quantity of turpentine has been boil'd for the space of two hours; then the colours being prepar'd and made very hot, boil the hair therein, and any colour will take, black excepted, and that will only take dark red and dark blue, &c.

And after this manner with colours cold, or but luke-warm, you may dye the feathers upon the backs of poultrey, wild-fowl, hair on dogs, horses or the like, and in as much variety as your fancy shall lead you to.
