...because one sure wouldn't want to burn any of it to sniff the aroma of the fumes, just in case they did use vermilion.

I noticed when polishing the brass with Nevr-Dull that I had to be careful not to get the naptha product on the cinnabar, or a red wipe mark on the cloth resulted.

Guessing that means it's soluble in hydrocarbons?
