Remarks: This can be dangerous to your health! If swallowed, induce vomiting by drinking warm water with salt. Contact a doctor immediately. Keep out of reach of children.

This is an asphalt-based varnish. It is primarily used to preserve plates from corrosion, rusting and scratching, as it dries to a hard surface. With today's techniques, asphaltum is frequently used as a ground, a stop out varnish and even as a coating for the backs of plates prior to immersing in an acid bath. The asphaltum used for these etching purposes is the same liquid asphaltum used by lithographers in their work.
User instructions: apply with a brush and let dry. If the liquid is too thin to give an even layer; leave the can open for a while. If the liquid is too thick, dilute with naphtha.
Washable tincture. Senefelder used this liquid as "Washable tincture". It is meant to reinforce the image on the stone. After making the drawing, before rolling in for printing, the stone is rubbed in with a few drops of Senefelder Asphaltum.

Etching; Used for making aquatints. Has a higher melting point than resin powder. The grain is finer than asphalt lumps and finer than resin powder. If it is mixed with "white spirit" it becomes "bitumen". If used without special provisions, it is dangerous to health.

Lithography; Used for detailed drawings, rub the stone lightly with asphalt powder, even before applying talcum powder. Be careful, asphalt powder is oily.
