Yellow Ochre wash


  • 1 pound of glue
  • 3 pounds of yellow ochre
  • 1 pound of whiting
  • water or skim milk


Dissolve the glue in hot water, and stir into it the yellow ochre and whiting; mix it well, and thin it with water or skim milk. It is a suitable wash for a common room or kitchen.

Lamp-black mixed with molasses, and put in white-wash, makes a good color for a kitchen.
