Because it's better to have paint that sucks but can be safely eaten.

So, if it's lead powder and it's 90% lead and 10% linseed oil, you have 90 pounds of lead. Can you separate it to melt down to cast boolits?

Looks like this but 100lbs


Too bad it isn't white lead paint. Mixed with a can of red lead paint, you'd be off to a good start...

Well shit, if'n you're gonna go there, it's a lot less than 90 lbs of lead. There's also a bunch of carbon and oxygen in there

Add tin and make some nice pewter gravy boats, or salt dishes?

Sorry, but I've had enough unintentional exposure to lead in my life, so intentional exposure just doesn't sound that appealing. YRMV.

You know, the lead does not jump out of the can and pour itself down your gullet.

I, as 11-12yo boy used to go to the service stations on my bicycle to pick up the discarded wheel weights to melt down for wrist-rocket ammo. I did this on the family stove, and even using a dedicated 'pot' I'm sure I contaminated our living space for a time.

Just saying...lead is bad shit when assimilated by the humans.

You should be worried about the estrogen-mimicking chemicals that are in, well, EVERYTHING.

Seriously - don't toss it. Perhaps decant into smaller containers for convenience.
Boiled linseed oil isn't actually boiled. It means that drying agents were added.

What happens when you melt it? Wear appropriate PPE and try torching some in a crucible?

Mix it with some roof paint and paint the roof of your workshop so the spy satellites can't see what you're up to. You could also paint hats with it and sell them to most of GCC. You'd be a thousandaire.
