To make a red water for white silke or woollen, greene, yealow, violet or azure.

Take a pottle of running water, and an ounce of brasill, seeth these till the halfe be consumed. Then take it from the fire, and put in so many graines, and as ye put unto a pot of pottage, and a fourth part of gumme. But if ye will make it a light red, put it into another fat, whereas there is a quarter of a pound of Allum made in powder, and so let it rest all night, and it will doe well.
