Linking your favorite traveling artists across the globe
|-Red Sandalwood, in period known as saunders, can produce deep orange shades. Like brazilwood, sandalwood needs to be properly oxidized for best color extraction. This is not the same sandalwood as what is used for perfumes (etc), which is white sandalwood.|
|-Safflower can produce a pretty orange shade as well as a more yellow color.|
|-Madder, if not properly handled, can produce orange rather than the truly desirable red. This is because the plant root contains several different color producing chemicals.|
Dyes that create reds and yellows can also yield oranges. Navajo dyers create orange dyes from one-seeded juniper, Juniperus monosperma, Navajo tea, Thelesperma gracile, or alder bark.
