To make a deep Green staining water.
Take juice of the greenest worts a pint, strain it through a cloth, and dissolve in it a sufficient quantity of purified verdigrease; mix them well together, and it will be a good colour.

First stain the leather, parchment or paper with a blue, and let it dry; then lay on the yellow staining colour, and it will add much to the beauty of the green.

A light staining Green.
Take a quart of malt-wort, put into it two shells full of florey, and stir them well together; first stain with this, then upon this staining lay yellow, 'till it becomes green; the more you lay on of your yellow staining liquor, the better the green will be.

To make a fine Blue staining water.
First make a weak lixivium of pot-ashes, or use lime-water; put into it a sufficient quantity of florey, and a little alum; let it dissolve over the fire, keeping stirring it, and put into it some wood-ashes, and so you will have a fine blue.

A weaker Blue staining water.
Dissolve a good quantity of florey blue, and a little alum, in a sufficient quantity of fair water; and, this will make a fainter colour than the former.

A Blue staining water weaker than the last.
To two quarts of pure well-water, put four shells full of florey; mix them well together, and hy them on thin, and this will be the faintest of the three.
