19.—ANOTHER EXCELLENT PLATE POWDER, BY J. R. W. LONDON.

Take one ounce of zinc, melt it in an iron ladle, then put to it two ounces of quicksilver, then turn this mixture out on some strong brown paper, pound and roll it fine, then pound and sift two pounds of best cake whiting, mix them well together, then mix in half an ounce of good vermilion, rub and mix them well up together. If you choose to use it wet, add to some of the powder spirits of wine, sufficient to make it the thickness of cream; rub your plate well and even with a piece of soft sponge dipped in this mixture, and polish off with your shammy leather. This powder, if properly made and used, will give a most brilliant and elegant lustre to silver, &c.
