One of the first artificially produced pigments, white lead mixes well with oil to a smooth uniform viscosity, has excellent opacity and brush handling qualities. Possessing great surface strength, it is nevertheless toxic in nature and will react by darkening when exposed to sulphur compounds or fumes. The latter reactivity is not too important as lead pigment in use is normally well protected by the oils and varnishes with which it is mixed.

GOLDEN Acrylics offer some of the most imaginative colors, lines and textures available with pure pigments. They contain no fillers, extenders or opacifiers and are made in the USA. And greatest of all, GOLDEN can save you money on top artist quality acrylics.
Save up to 44% on a Bigger Jar!

Discharge paste is a reducing agent for safely removing color from natural fibers, and is even safe on silk. It removes most fiber reactive dyes, direct dyes, and many acid dyes, especially the "leveling" ones. The pre-metallized ones and some milling don't discharge. It is thick enough to block print, brush it on, screen it on, stencil it on, etc. You can apply the paste to your fabric, let it dry and steam it with a steam iron or steam in a steamer for 10 minutes or so, until it stops discharging. Then wash your fabric in a good detergent like Synthrapol, and rinse in Milsoft to restore softness.
