PROCESS OF TREATING PICTURES.

SPECIFIGATIONforming part of Letters Patent No. 758,945, dated May 3, 1904.

Application filed February 12, 1904 T0 ctZZ 11/72/0717, it ntay concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM BUZBY TYLER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Camden, in the county of Camden and State of New Jersey, have invented a new and useful Process of Treating Pictures, of which the following is a specification.

My present invention relates to a novel process for treating pictures, my object being to beautify pictures of all kinds by means of a simple and inexpensive process which will serve to illuminate the picture, intensify the coloring thereof, bring out the pictured image in bold relief, and render translucent and give body to the material upon which the image is produced.

The process is practiced in the following manner: A suitable vessel is partially filled with a strong solution of petroleum-soapsuds, to which, if it is desired to dye or illuminate the picture, is added a pigment of the desired color. In this solution the picture is immersed for a period of time, depending upon the thickness of material, the intensity of color desired, and the required shade of the illumination. The picture is then removed from the suds-bath and after being drained is treated, preferably, both front and back, to a thin coat of a-compound consisting of equal parts of headlight-oil, lard, hard-oil finish, and strong petroleum-soapsuds, and a small quantity of photographic paste reduced to a milky consistency The reduction of the paste is preferably, though not necessarily, effected by the addition of a suitable quantity of suds. The picture thus coated is next placed in a second receptacle partially filled with a solution of strong petroleum-soapsuds covered with a thin film of headlight-oil. This second immersion is continued a few minutes, after which the picture is removed, drained and dried, and finally polished with a woolen cloth. The picture thus treated will be found to-be beautifully illuminated and highly translucent. Moreover, the color will be intensified and enlivened, and faded tones will be revivified. The image will thus be sharply defined, and it will be found that the translucent coating, while not interfering $erial No. 193,825. (No specimens.)

with the translucence of the material or the brilliant display of the coloring, will give body or volume to the material and at the same time will protect the picture from the deteriorating action of the air. If desired, the picture thus treated may be backed either by a layer of translucent material or by a backing sufiiciently opaque to increase the sharpness of the image.

Obviously the above treatment may be extended to the border of the picture and to the mat if an extended illumination is desired. It will furthermore be evident that all classesof pictures may be subjected to the specified treatment with good results. newspaper illustrations,and other cheap prints are particularly beautified by the process 'described.

Petroleum-soap, hard-oil finish, and photograph-paste, herein referred to, are substances purchasable in the market under these names. The petroleum-soap is a soap composed in part of petroleum. The hard-oil finish is a solution Wall paper,

of hard gums or resins ordinarily employed as a varnish, and the photograpl paste is a white dextrinous or starchy paste ordinarily employed in the mounting of photographs. It should be distinctly understood, however, that while the particular materials and the exact procedure hereinbefore specified are believed at this time to be conducive to the best results I nevertheless reserve the right to effect such minor variations of the process as may come fairly within the scope of the protection prayed.

What I claim is j 1. That process for the treatment of pictures which consists in firstsoaking the same in a strong solution of petroleum-soapsuds, next providing the picture with a transparent coating, next immersing the picture in a solution of strong soapsuds covered with headlight-oil, and subsequently drying the pic ture.

2. That process for treating pictures which consists in subjecting the same to the action of petroleum-soapsuds and a pigment, next providing the picture with a transparent coating, next subjecting the coated picture to the IO tion of strong suds covered with headlightoil, and subsequently drying and polishing the picture. 7

In testimony that 1 claim the foregoing as my own 1 have hereto nflixed. my signature in the presence of two witnesses.

\VILLIAM BUZBY TYLER. Vitnesses:

FRANK SCIIENK, ANNA M. SOIIMITZ.
