Application filed March 10, 1925, Serial No.'14,588, and in Germany February 10, 1925.
This invention relates to a method of producing candles with polychromatically decorated surfaces. The method consists in producing on thesurface of the candle one ,5 or more colored layers and in removing a part of the uppermost colored layer or of several of said layers from some spots of the candle surface, whereby the lower dif- Candles,which have been produced in the machine with uniformly deep grooves, are first homogenously dyed by immersing the same into a liquiddye (or subsequently in several liquid dyes) After the drying of said dye some layers of said grooves are removed by means of a suitable device, whereby polychromatic designs are produced. In the same manner also candles with smooth surface can be treated, so for instance by immersing said candles in'liquiddyes and removing after the dryingthe colored layers to a more or less deep extent.
' Further, the method canbe performed in ,such a manner, that on the surface of the smooth plain candles recesses are produced .by removing partially the candle material, whereupon the candles are brushed with the dyeg mass. This colored layer is immediately jwiped off by means of a piece of cloth or. the like, so that the color remains only in the engraved grooves, while the candle in the whole shows only a slight tint'of tne color.
7 Inthe accompanying drawing, in which several modifications of candles produced according to my improved method are illustrated, I V
Figs. 1 to 3 shown one of saldmodifications in various states of treatment, "while Figs. 4 and 6 illustrate in the same mannor the second modification and from the raise ing to Fig. 3 appears.
The upper end 3 as well as the longer end 4 of the candle can remain'green, as shown in Fig. 3, or can vbe treated in the same manner as the shaft 2.
The groundand cover-color or paints can be selected, of course, as desired.
In the modification according to Figs. 4 to 6 1 indicates again the candle, the central shaft 2 of which is provided with longitudinally extending recesses 5, between which the rips 6 are remaining,
The coloring of this candle is effected in such a manner that the originally naturally colored candle is dipped in, green paint, so that the picture according to Fig. 4 appears. Thereu on the paint is removed surfaces 6 by means of a rag, so that the ripsreceive the natural yellow color, while the recesses 5 retain the green color.
The number and shape of the recesses in the'shaft 2 can be as desired and they may 35 have a round, triangular orsquare crosssection.
The collars 7 running around the candle can be provided with a. different color, for instance gold-bronze.
The thus produced polychromatically decorated candles can be still further decorated or can be otherwise treated in a suitable manner. Also the described modifications of the subject matter of the invention can be combined with. each other. The designs obtained by the method of the invention are distinguished by a. vivid coloring and also by their tarsiaor mosaic-like appearance.
I claim: 1. A method of producing polychromatically decorated candles, which methodconsists in producing on the candle surface one I or more colored layers and then removing, which is provided with uniformly deep after said layers have been dried, some grooves, one or more colored layers and then 10 parts of the individual layers or of several removing after said layers have been dried layers at certain spots of the candle sursome parts of the individual layers or of 5 face. several layers at certain spots of the grooves.
2. A method of producing polychromati- In testimony whereof I afiix my signacally decorated candles, which method conture. sists in producing on the candle surface MARIE ELFRIEDE HARNISCH.
