Description

Excerpt from Practical Carriage and Wagon Painting: A Treatise on the Painting of Carriages, Wagons and Sleighs, Embracing Full and Explicit Directions for Executing All Classes of Work Including Painting Factory Work; Lettering, Scrolling, Ornamenting, Varnishing, Etc

Practical carriage and wagon painting is presented to a generous public with the knowledge that its superior has never made its appearance in this country.

It is but a short time since the demands of the times gave birth to that great institution - the factory shop - that monster establishment from which hundreds of vehicles are turned out daily. The writer pleads guilty to a strong prejudice against the class of work done in these factories, yet he is compelled to admire the finished product and applaud the genius of the painter who can thus marshal his forces and, by working to a set Of fixed rules, seem to defy natural laws, and out of it all bring a thing of beauty which, while it does not prove a joy forever, does possess a degree of durability that we of the old school of carriage painters were lead to believe was impossible. It has remained for Mr. Hillick to take us through this great establishment, and he describes the processes and gives us the form ulas that are employed, in such plain, helpful language, that no one can read his words without profit as well as pleasure.
