Re: Builder's paint


While I don't wish to prolong this discussion "white lead" is
what houses were painted with in my childhood back east.
I always thought white lead was a permanent paint.
White lead was the pigment. The primary vehicle was boiled linseed oil.
Probably a case where the painters accidentally used boiled linseed instead
of some other solvent and the mixture actually became paint. Everybody has a
bad day once in a while.<G>
