THER AND FIRE PROOF.—This Paint will
stand anv climate, without crack or blister, and
hardens by exposure, thus making in time an
enamel of stone, protecting Wood from decay, and
Iron and other metals Horn rust and corrosion.
This Paint differs from the so-called Mineral
Paints ot the (lay, which are principally Uehres |
and Clays colored, and are entirely worthless.
Silver’s Plastic Paints are purely Metalic, con
taining no Alumin or Clay.
They are levigated finely, mix readily with
Linseed Oil, (without the trouble ot grinding.)
and flow under the brush as lreely as the best
White Lead.
These Paints excel all others in body or cover
ing properties, one pound ot which w ill cover
as much surface, as two pounds ot White Lead.
There are tour natural colors, viz: Black or
Slate. Brow n, Olive, and Chocolate.
Directions.—This Paint flows lreely under the
brush, and its covering property is increased hy
using it mixed as thickly as possible, w ith itkk
Linseed Oil; as the Paint is the lasting or pro
tecting body, and the Oil simply the medium or i
agent in spreading it. I

with pleasure my full and hearty recommenda
tion of it as a preventive ot Eire communica
ting from chimneys, or trom adjoining buildings. ;
The Paint which you put on my root', has now ;
become as hard as slate, and 1 teel as secure trom
Eire, in tiii> direction as is possible. A tew ,
weeks alter tiie roots had been painted, I made
an experiment on two or three shingles, by pla
cing them m the furnace under the boilers; the
result was, that the portion uncovered wasen- i*
tirelv consumed, while the Painted part was ap*
patently sound, though upon examination the
wood was touud to he charred: the Paint, how
t‘\<*r. was firm, ami but little blistered, i consider
this a* severe a test as your Paint can be put to,
and under the circumstances. I do not hesitate to
commend it as an invaluable preventive against
Fire. Respectful! v, Ac.,
