If an ordinary paint or coloring material were
employed, it would not be possible to perform the
operations of cutting and stacking the cut ele
ments without smearing of the coloring material.
10 For this reason, it is an important part of the
method that a quick drying paint be utilized as
the web of building material to which the quick
drying paint is applied is usually quite hot after
receiving its surfacing of interspersed mineral
16 particles and such will help drive off the volatile
solvents of the paint and thereby bring about a
rapid initial set. Said paint may be a cellulose
mixture, as cellulose ester in a readily volatile
solvent, commercially known as Duco, which pos
20 sesses the property of drying very rapidly. ‘

that portions of the belt will not fall away, the mineral surfacing said coating comprising a
lines of demarcation which will be applied to the
25 web will be broken at intervals.
For this reason, '
the printing'roller 20 is employed, said printer
having a printing plate extending around its
periphery which is formed to apply coloring ma
terial to the short sections of the web which are
30 below the portions 30 of the stencil belt.. The
web will therefore leave the printing roller with
continuous lines of demarcation 3i thereon.
Next, the web will be severed longitudinally and
transversely by the knives 23 of the cutting roller
22 to produce from each side of the web a plu
35 rality
of ?gured elements such as are shown in
‘ Figure 4.
Each of said elements is then cut inwardly from
its lower edge'as at 32 to form a slit for engage
40 ment with a lug 33. The shingles produced may
be laid as shown in Figure 5 with adjacent ele
ments in the same row having overlapping ends
which are interlocked through the lugs and slits
33 and 32, and with the lower edge of one row
above overlapping the upper edge of a row below,
as shown in Figure 5, to create an effect of a plu
rality of brick-like ?gures.
Although the coloring material 28 is shown as
, applied in the form ofa spray, it may also be ap
plied by a soft application roll, or in any other
50 suitable manner. It is further to be understood
that the stencil may be formed to produce any
type of design on the web, the brick-like design
shown being merely for the purpose of illustra
tion. All other changes and modi?cations are
55 also contemplated as may come within the scope
of the claims.
