Naturally—and one may say unavoidably—there has grown up in the course of years, in connection with Colour-making, as with every other industry, a good deal of what is known as “Rule of thumb" procedure. The amount of this that prevails, however, has been greatly overrated, and we are not far distant from the day when “Rule of thumb” will be generally supplemented among us by an intelligent appreciation of the scientific principles involved. To give the rationale of every technical process is, nevertheless, by no means an easy task, and all that I can hope to have effected is the placing before the reader such a description of the various processes and their underlying principles, as shall be really helpful in practical work. The information given as to the properties and preparation of Pigments, is either based on. my own experience, or drawn from the most trustworthy sources. For a revision of the chapter on Warnishes, and many excellent suggestions, I am indebted to a personal friend, practically engaged o their
