    A nice orange sauce works well.

    Halford mentioned using ebony chips in a couple of his dye recipes. This picture shows natural wood duck flank next to a test feather using ebony dye.

    Thanks for that, will try to get ebony chips. What was the rest of the recipe?

    I thought about how to answer your question but it would be a lot easier just to get a book on natural dyes.
