The method of applying it is by putting into the mouth a part of the resin, and, when it is moistened, by rubbing the brush upon it, and then applying it to the object to be painted, when it becomes dry, and of a most beautiful and lively colour, imitating the China colours ; and with this particular recommendation, that it never fades, nor does moisture have any effect
