III The odor of the so-called banana liquid being unpleasant to many persons and difficult to get rid of for some time, a lustrous and very durable aluminum liquid bronze paint can be made by mixing 16 pounds of the finest bronze powder with 60 pounds of a pale mixing varnish of the China wood oil type, that contains heavy petroleum naphtha (the so-called turpentine substitute) for solvent, and 26 pounds 62° benzine.

This batch will yield about 11 gallons, allowing for waste and evaporation in mixing.
