The process of making the chemical composition comprises the steps of filling a mixer with 30-60% by weight of hot water and adding 10-20% by weight of barium carbonate or strontium carbonate, 10-20% by weight of phosphoric acid (75%), 5-15% by weight of lime, and 10-20% by weight of boric acid; mixing the contents for 10-15 minutes to create a wet slurry; pouring the wet slurry into an attrition mill for 15-60 minutes; drying the wet slurry and milling it to an average particle size of one to two microns to form a dry pigment; and pushing the dry pigment through a 325 mesh sieve.
