Referring to the drawing in detail, there is illustrated the method of finishing articles to provide them with a marbleized wrinkle finish filled with water H, as illustrated in Figure 1 so as to completely cover an article such as II when lowered into the t One or more diflerently colored enamels or lacquers, as illustrated at A; B, C, D and E is poured onto the surface 01' the water, forming into the tank In is allowed to drip and is the surface of the water at the same time.

and the articles, as shown at 118, are suitably supported in the tank.
Preferably, the coating compositions used are in the form of emulsion and comprise diflerent Other vehicles may be utilized which will function as an be made to produce the current is supplied from the generator (3- and electrical connections made to the tank and articles being coated as illustrated in Figure 4. After the articles have been sufiiciently coated with the difierent coating compositions, they are removed baked to produce a wrinkle finish. It will be appreciated that with the use of differelectrical connections and current density may I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters 20 Patent is:
1. The method of producing articles having a marbleized wrinkle finish comprising the floating 01 a plurality of wrinkle drying coating films in the form of striated layers over the surface of a body of water, immersing the article to be coated through the striated layers of coating compositions and into the body of water, removing the article, and drying the coating film to produce a hard, wrinkle finish resembling marble.
2. In the method 0! finishing articles to provide a marbleized finish therefor, comprising the steps of floating a plurality of wrinkle finish compositions in the form of striated layers over the surface of an aqueous body and immersing the articles to be finished through the striated layers and into the aqueous body, rotating the article while removing the same to provide a striped mottled coating film on said article, and thereafter drying the coating film to a hard wrinkle finish.
