Paint for Walls

Manufacturer and Builder 8, 1890

One of the useful practical suggestions of the Wiener Bauindustrie Zeitung is that an excellent paint for wal[l] may be made by dissolving, with the aid of a moderate heat, one part of paraffine in two or three parts of heavy oil of creosote. The solution should be thick when cold, but not solid. In use, the can containing it dhouls be set in warm water, so that the paint may be liquid, and flow freely from the brush, and the wall should not be too cold. For brick walls exposed to dampness, or liable to become soaked by driwing rains, this forms a useful application, either on the inside or the outside.
