Thanks for the interest - I am not sure exactly what type of paint is used on the apron shown here, but several of the aprons in our collection show the same kind of paint used in early 1800s theorem paintings, while others show oil-based paints. Basically, I think they used what was handy and what was common for the time. I'm not aware that "special" paints were used just for these aprons. Aimee Newell, Senior Curator of Collections


I was wondering what types of paints were used on these historic aprons?
