Antimonial Paint.

Scientific American 37, 3.6.1848

Mr. J. Forrest, of Liverpool, England, has discovered that the white oxide of antimony is superior as a body paint to the white oxide of lead without any of its deleterious qualities. It does not become yellow like white lead, and weight for weight, it spreads over a larger surface than lead. No patent has been taken out for it. The discoverer has made a present of it to the public. The old chemists called antimony their lead.
