SECT. VII. Of Compounded Colours.
Of the six simple Colours before named, [ndr : White, Black, Red, Green, Yellow, Blue, voir p. 86], together with the
Browns, many others may be compounded for Faces of all Complexions, Garments, Lanskips, Building ; for Birds, Fishes, Beasts, and what not : I will shew how to compound some, and by those you may by practice find out and invent infinite more. I shall instance in these following, As,


A Violet. / A Lead-colour. / Flame-colour. / Scarlet.
Light-green. / Purple. / A Bay-colour. / A Murry.


To make a
Violet-colour.
Indico, White, and Lake, make a good Violet-colour ; you may make it lighter or darker at pleasure, as you may all other compounded Colours.


Lead-colour.
Indico and White make a Lead-colour.


Colour for Flaming-fire.
Red-lead, and Masticote, heightned with White.


Scarlet-colour.
Red-lead, Lake and Vermilion, very little or no Vermilion, for it is not good in Limning.


Light-green.
Pink and Smalt, with White to make it lighter, if you require it.


A Purple colour.
Indico, Spanish brown, and White.


A Bay-colour.
Spanish
-brown and White.


A Murrey-colour.
Lake and White make a Murrey-colour.


Of these infinite others may be made, but I leave them to your own ingenuity to find out, which with little practice you will soon do.
