WILLIAM TROTTER, JR, 013 OYSTER BAY, NEW YORK.

LUMINOUS'PICTURE, PRINT, 80C.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 267,284, dated November 7, 1882.

Application filed April 14, 1882, (No model.)

' State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Luminous Pictures, Prints, Inscriptions, and Illustrations,- of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawings. J

This invention relates to painting, printing,- inscribiug delineatin g, or otherwise producin g pictures, letters, figures, or designs on surfaces of paper, card-board, cloth, glass, wood, metal, or other material in such manner that they will be invisible, or nearly so, when exposed to incident light, but ,will appear conspicuously in the darkor when removed fromas the luminous material which produces the incident light.

The invention consists in a sheet or tablet of paper, cloth, card-board, metal, or other material having'upon it. two difl'erent pictures, figures, designs, or letterin'gs and a surrounding ground, one of the said pictures, figures, designs, or letterin gs and the ground appearing of the same color when exposed to incident light, but the said figure, picture, design, or lettering being produced in non-luminous ma- -terial and the ground being produced in luminous or phosphorescent material, or vice versa, and the other-of said pictures, figures, designs, or letterings being-of a color different from that of the ground, one of said pictures, figures, designs, or letterings being distinctly or conspicuously visible only when exposedto incident light and the other only when re- I moved from incident light.- The two pictures,

designs, figures, or letterings thus produced may be arranged side by side or superposed one over theother.

I withthe two different sorts of painting or printing material. Fig. 31s a view of a card or tablet having upon it two printed letters, one of which is supposed to be visiblepnly when exposed to incident light and the otheronl-y when removed from incident light.

The card or tablet shown in Figs. 1 and-2 may be produced either by taking a piece or tablet of ordinary unprepared card-board or paper, or a piece of any other suitable mawill become phosphorescent after exposure to incident light, or clse'printing, painting, or delineating the flgureor design thereon wit 1 asuitable varnish-as mastic or dammar-o. with-'a'solution of gum 'or-gelatine, and dust} ing over the so painted, p'riuted,-or delineated figure with luminous sulphide of calcium in powder. the ground a surrounding the figure-must be of as nearly as possible the same color'or tint figure or design; In such a card or tablet the .able from the surrounding grounds; but on removal into a da'rlrplace after such exposure the figure ordesig i will be luminous and visiinvisible. g The above-described eii'ect maybe varied by or design, as b, non-luminous. Thislnay be done by painting the whole surface of the card or tablet with luminous paint and afterward figure or design'with an opaque and non-luminous printing-inkor' paint of a color resembling thatof the ground. In 'case, however, the luminous paint of the ground (the sulphide of calcium, the printing-ink or paint but it maybe an oxide of zinc, slightly tinted with ocher or other material to match the tint of the sulphide of calcium. The card, sheet, or tablet so constructed is provided with a second design or figure, as at c, and this design or figure cis of a difl'ei'ent color. In

figure b luminous, the .difl'e'rent-coloredfigure c should-be produced by printing, painting, or steuciling with non luminous paint or ink; but in case the ground a be luminous and the colored figure a should be produced either of sulphide of calcium or other materialjwhich figure or design, as bg-will, under exposure to incident light, be scarcely, if atall, distinguish-t used for thefigure should not contain lead;

figure or design b non-luminous the'diii'erent- Care must,'however, be taken that v. t, ble, standing; out by itself, the groundbei'ng i making the ground a luminous and the figure printing; painting, or stenciling upon it the case the grounda be non-luminous and the with luminous paint or with some thin trans-n 'parent paint through which the phosphorence of the ground a may shine in the dark.

The card, sheet, or tablet produced with the -two designs'or figures as hereinabove described is proteau in its character,one ofthe figures or designs only being plainly visible under exposure to incident light and the other one only being plainly; visible when the card,

10 tablet, or picture is 'ren oi'ed fromincident.

light.

scribed in that the difi'erent-colore'd figur'e'or '15 design, whether luminous or non-luminous, is.

superposed or partly superposed over that which corresponds in color. with the ground instead 'of thefigli'res or designsbeing arranged side by side, but the effect-is the same. W hen the figures are partly superposed in this way the different-colored superposed figure cshould' be always printed or painted-with a transparent ink or paint through which either the ground a or figure or design-b, whichever is luminous, may shine through the said figure c;

in the dark.

The example shown: in Fig.3 only differsfrom that shown in Fig. 1 in the substitution of two letters for two figures.

- What I claimas my invention, and desire to secure by LQtterSTatent, is-

1. A sheet or tablet ofpaper or other ma l iterial having upon it'two different picturesof The example shown "in Fig.2 only differs from thatvshown in Fig; 1 and h-erein'above denon-luminous material; and one being of a or surface of the tablet andsthe other of a dif-' 2.
