She sold the product, renamed Liquid Paper, from her house for 17 years and in 1979 it was sold to the Gillette Corporation for $47.5 million with royalties. She died the following year, with half of her estate going to charity and half to her only child, actor, producer, businessman and former Monkee, Michael Nesmith. By the 1980s, the product was available in colors other than white and it can now be bought in a pen. the chemical name of liquid paper is titanium dioxide (TiO2).
