  3. Pour the glue into a quart measure and add the few ounces of water necessary to bring its volume to one quart.
  4. Replace in double boiler, heat thoroughly, and it is ready for use.
  5. Mix the hot glue mixture with precipitated chalk, about one pound per quart.
  6. Paint on board, paint beautiful picture over that, frame board, and hang on your wall.
