Lac also has a very strong smell.
Kate Ellis
01:10:49
Not specifically about cochineal but - Elena - Another great presentation, thank you. I saw your presentation for the Fowler, too. I have a burning question about the tie-dye Wari tunic. I understand the discontinuous warp and weft weaving process, and I’m thinking about the order of the dye baths. Most of the rectangles are easy to decipher —red and white with a “black” background, yellow on a green background— but how did they get the red pattern on a yellow background? Was it a different way to bind it?
Karthika Audinet
01:10:50
Very interesting. Thanks. Can you tell us more about Armenian cochineal?
Alexandra Harris
01:11:03
Really enjoyed the migration of cochineal to all the countries of the world. Thank You
Mary Lance
01:11:05
Fantastic, Elena. Tell us about Armenian cochineal.
Michelle Gannes

Did you find any regulations in the early centuries of royalties and nobles only being allowed to use these colors

Fabulous presentation!
Barbara Sopjes
01:11:15
Wonderful ! Thank you
Amy Hopkins
01:11:15
Thank you. Does the freshness of the cochineal make a difference in the intensity of the color? I have some that is about 5 years old and am wondering if it’s still worth using?
France Poliquin
01:11:17
Do you think climate change will affect the Cochineal production?
Debbie Bamford
01:11:22
when working with the dyes to give a comparison did you look at the historical recipes too. Also the historical ways the dyes were prepared (as in dried or used fresh, peeled or not etc)
David Weissman
01:11:22
How did there happen to be cochineal in Armenia?
Regina
01:11:24
Thank you so much, so inspiring.

do you think the cochineal found the in the ancient wrecks were still viable

Suzanna James
01:12:51
This was absolutely fascinating thank you so much!! Do you know how cochineal insects are collected industrially, are they now farmed or still collected from a natural population level in South America?
Nancy Ferro
01:12:57
Thank you so very much. I want to return to Peru. This has been so inspiring, as I have been working with a lot of red in my encaustic painting .
Katie Smith
01:12:59
I've heard that cochineal farming was not conducive to large plantations during the slave period of the Americas--but rather small family farms produced it. Do you know if this is still the case in terms of its production or if cochineal is now produced on large swaths of land?
Tatiana Verdon
01:13:01
Wonderful lecture, Elena
Jenine Shereos
01:13:03

Gabriela Nirino
01:16:16
Thank you so much!!! Kind regards from Argentina
Monique Sidy
01:16:32
In our Arizona yard, we see these white things on our cacti. The bugs in this white stuff do make that red when pressed on paper. How can I collect the bugs (with the white fluff?) and then how to process them for my dyeing?
Suzanna James
01:16:36
Yes Hilary I would love to know this too, and how this happens today
czarina den ouden lobo
01:16:40
Very, very inspired by all your knowledge and sharing. Thank you for a wonderful slide presentation.
Kate Ellis
01:16:46
When I dip a cloth into a cochineal bath, the color bleeds up into the dry cloth, and at the end is black. Why does that happen?
Aleksandra Azbel
01:16:56
Were there deities or spiritual holidays/practices you have studied associated with the cochineal species?
Celeste Malvar-Stewart
01:17:46
Thank you for an intriguing presentation!! Wondering if there is any “storytelling” from the pre-Columbian era that may have hinted to how they dyed their reds?
Gika Rector
01:17:49
Great talk. Thanks. Is your top dyed with cochineal?
Ann Friebertshauser
01:18:46
Elena, Do you know my aunt Prudence Harper who was curator of the Ancient Near East at the Met?

Joanna Gertler

There’s a terrific exhibition on at the Royal Ontario Museum called Chintz: the cloth that changed the world. Sadly the museum is currently closed, but it will be on until 2021 at least. There’s a large catalogue and information about the natural dyes used in creating these wonderful textiles. Obviously the red they used was different to cochineal.
