Boiling the paste is very injuritfus, rendoring it less adhesivo and liable to poel off. Kyo llovir affords a more adhesivo paste, but of a gray color. A little alum added to the water with wliich paste is prepared renders it more permauent, and the use of boiling lime water instead of pure water adds to its adhesiveness. By incorporating with the paste a quantity of turpentine, equal in weightto half of the starch employed, and stirring well while the. puste is s'tül hot, it will be rendered more iniporvious to moisture, and at the same time moro adhesivo.
