Pale Brass Lacquer.

Scientific American 47, 11.8.1849

Two hallons of spirits of wine, one pound of fine pale shellac, three ounces of Cape aloes, cut small; one ounce of gamboge, cut small; no turpentine varnish. Those who make lacquers quite often require, some paler, some darker, and sometimes inclining to the tint of some particular ingredient; it would be well to have prepared a four-ounce phial of strong solution of each ingredient, thus lacquer of any tint can be produced at any time.
