Caption: Lead paint. Close-up photograph of a window sill showing old layers of paint that contain lead. Lead pigments were a common ingredient in white, yellow, red and orange paints. It was also used as an agent to speed up drying and increase durability. Although banned from sale in the UK and US, older painted surfaces continue to expose people to the risk of lead poisoning.
