For use above the waterline so that it does not contaminate paint colour, i.e. showing tramlines through the paint. However with modern paints such as METACLOR C.R. Primers two coats of this and it hides just about anything.

The mix is usually 60% White lead with 40% putty added to make it go further. When you have a good ball mixed add a thumb nail of motor grease and mix in well. This will slow down the drying of the putty that gives the cracks one sees in old seams.

This is often bought with Raw Linseed Oil to make either a paste or an emulsion which is painted on to the canvas between double diagonal planking.
