To make a good flat water paint, take 50 lb. of gilders' bolted whiting, place it in a tub and pour water over it until the mass is covered. Allow this to stand several hours, say, over night, then pour off the excess water and add 2 gal. of hard oil finish - gloss or resin oil will do - and any desired color, then beat up the mass until it is perfectly smooth. Use water color or dry color, not oil color. Thin the mass down to a brushing consistencey with turpentine, benzol or benzine, and it is ready for use. This will make a very nice, flat, lusterless finish as good as the much advertised water paints of the same character.
