    Horn Dyeing - Mad Monk
    Man has long used mineral pigment dyes as a means of coloring goods made from various animal proteins. In addition to being decorative, the mineral pigment dyes also provide varying degrees of protection against attack by insects or bacteria. The mineral pigment dyes are both decorative and protective. While the mineral pigment dyes were used on cellulose-based goods, it was on protein-based goods where they were at their greatest value. Animal proteins used by man include; leather, fur, horns, silk, wool, bone and antler. Hides, leather, horn, silk and wool are all food sources for a wide number of animals and microbes.
