Lead (II) nitrate to lead white pigment

Post by jsimon »

hi I am making pigments for my art class and I wanted to ask if it is posible to make (PbCO3)2·Pb(OH)2 from Pb(NO3)2. I made Lead iodide and if there is any more lead pigment I can make from same chemical that would be blessing.

You bake lead oxide not lead metal, fumes are less, but a good hood with ventilation would be solve that Problem.
