HERMAN C. MILLER, 0F CANTON, OHIO, ASSIG-NOR TO THE UNITED METAL PRODUCTS COMPANY, 0F CANTON, OHIO, A CORPORATION 0F OHIO.

ORNAMENTED SURFACEVAND METHOD OF FORMING TI-IE SAME.

Application filed July 13, 1925. Serial No. 43,214.

To all whom t may cof/zoem:

Be it known that I, HERMANO. MILLER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Canton, in the county of Stark and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Ornamented Surfaces and Methods of Forming the Same, of Which thefollowing is a specification.

This invention relates to ornamenting surfaces of sheet metal, ile, Wood, glass or similar material, and ore particularly to a novel method of ornamenting the surfaces of sheet metal doors, sashes, baseboards and the like.

It is Well known that sheet metal has to a large extent-replaced Wood for use in doors, sashes, baseboards' and other build# ing materials, particularly in the construction `of. oiiice buildings and similar large edifices. It is customary to paint or enamel such metal material in imitation of Wood grain, thus giving the higher priced and more durable metal structure the appearance of the ordinary Wooden doors, sashes and the like.

The object of the, present invention is to` provide an ornamental surface for sheet metal and the like in which any desired design or effect may be carried out, the finished surface having irregular ribs and valleys, the Whole giving the impression of a metallic finish rather than the usual Wood finish. An embodiment of the invention is illustrated in 4the accompanying drawing, in .vvhich- Figure l is an elevation of a portion of the surface ornamented by the improved method;

Fig. 2, a section through a sheet o f metal with the finish coating thereon before the high spots in the surface have been smoothed or cut; and i Fig. 3,21. similar view of thefinished surface.

0r configuration with brushes or suitabletools.

vThis composition is' indicated by the numeral 2 and in cross section may assume aconfiguration similar to that shown in' Fig. `2, having alternate irregular valleys 3 and ribs 4.

The sheet is then placed in an oven and kiln .and baked until the coating becomes extremely hard, after'ivhich the top surfaces of the ribs 4 are ground or filed forming the flat irregular surfaces 5, as shown in Figs. 1 and 3.

The decorated surfaces -may then be painted in any desired manner. It has been found by experience that very artistic results may be obtained by painting the entire surface with bronze, gold or silver paint, and after the s ame has dried a coat of green or other color is applied to the surface, and While Wet the flat surfaces l5 are wiped olf, leaving the gold bronze or silver thereon, While the valleys remain green. A coat of varnish may be applied to the coated surface, after the'same has thoroughly dried.

Although onlyone design of an ornamentation-is illustrated, it has been found vvith experience that by the use of various instruments or. tools, a great number of artistic finishes may be easily and quickly formed upon the coated surface, giving the impression of metal., rather than the usual Wood finishes novv in common use.

Although this finish is primarily intended for sheet metal doors, sashes, baseboards and 'the like, it is adaptable for use for ornamenting` any surface, such as Wood, tile,

. glass or other materials, it being understood that Where wood or similarv materials is used the coating is sun dried instead of being baked in the furnace.

l. 'The ornamenting process -.which consists in applying a plastic coating to a surface to be ornamented, forming ribs and valleys inA said coating, hardening the coating and cutting 'away the high points of the ribs.

2. The ornamenting process which consists in applying a plastic coating to alsurface to be ornamented, forming ribs and valleys in said coating, hardening the coating and cutting away the high points of the ribs, forming Hat surfaces in substantially the same plane.

3. The ornainenting process which consists in applying a plastic coating to the surface of an'article to be ornamented, forming ribs and valleys in said coating, baking the coatedarticle until the coatinor is hard and cutting away the high points of the ribs.

4. The ornamenting process which consists in applying a plastic coating to the surfacc of an article to be ornamented, forming ribs and valleys in said coating, baking the coated article until the coating is hard and cutting away the high points of the ribs forming flat surfaces in substantially the same plane. v I y 5. The ornamenting process'whlch consists in applying a plastic coating to a surface to be ornamented, forming ribs and' valleys in said coating, hardening the coating and cutting away the high points of the ribs forming flat surfaces in substantially the same plane, painting the coated surface and permitting the paint to dry, painting the surface with 'a different color of paint and wiping the second coat of paint from said Hat surfaces while the paint is wet.

' 6. The ornamenting process which'consists in applying a plastic coating to a surface to be ornamented, forming ribs and valleys in` said coating, hardening` the coating and cutting away the high points of the ribs forming flat surfaces in substantially the same plane, painting the coated surface and` permitting the paint to dry, painting the surface with a different color of paint and wiping the second coat of paint from ysaid flat surfaces while the paint is wet and covering said painted surface with a transparent water proof coating.

7. The ornan'ienting process which. consists in applying a plastic coating to a surface to be ornamented, forming ribs and valleys in said coating, hardening the coating and cutting away the high points of the ribs, forming fiat surfaces in substantially the same plane, painting said ornamentedv surface and `coveringthe painted surfaces witha transparent water proof coverin In testimony that I claim the above, Iave hereunto subscribed my name.
