This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1887. Excerpt: ... B B.--The second letter of the English alphabet, consisting of a vertical bar joined to two semi-circles. The lower circle of the letter is made a trifle larger than the top circle, although this is not so noticeable when the letter is in proper position, as it is when it is turned over or " upside down." This is done to give a perfect balance to the letter, for if the upper and lower semi-circles were alike, the letter would appear as if it could easily be pushed over. As it is, it stands firmly and presents a bold appearance. Back-ground.--That part of a picture which represents the extreme distance, or the space behind a group of figures. Backing.--In painting or gilding on glass, that which is to appear on the front of the glass is, when dry coated upon the back, called backing or "backing up."

A mixture of lamp-black and varnish with some oil added is far superior as a backing--in fact any oil paint will answer a good purpose. Badger.--An animal very similar to a bear, inhabiting most parts of Europe, Asia and North America; one species found in this country is called the ground hog. The hairs or bristles of this animal are made into brushes for painters. A large proportion of the so-called badger-hair brushes are made with a mixture of white skunk and hog hair. Even in the badger-hair there is a difference in quality; the winter killed animals produce the best hair, and that which grows down the back is decidedly the best and liveliest, and makes a brush that will give perfect satisfaction and outwear those made of inferior sto...
