Before color photography became common for amateurs, colored prints were created by adding color to black-and-white prints, using transparent paints. Dates to 1920's-1930's

The Velox Water Color Outfit was the most commonly used means set for coloring photographs. The set contained 12 colors:

Light yellow
Deep yellow
Flesh tint
Brilliant red
Scarlet
Warm brown
Foliage green
Deep green
Light blue
Dark blue
Violet
Stone grey

The colors were on contained in "stamps", which were in the rear of the booklet. The coloring pages were saturated in water color dye of the various colors, with one page of each color, and perforated so that each page yielded 28 stamps, each ½" x 1¾".

To use, a stamp of the desired color was removed from a page, placed in one of the small wells in the top of the white enamel outfit, and a small amount of water added, producing the transparent water color. The water color was then applied to a print or lantern slide with one of the included brushes.

This outfit consists of two stamp book. The yellow one is completely intact and the Gray one is mostly there with a few stamps missing. There are four brushes that came with this tin.
The enameled tin itself is in wonderful shape with lovely gold lettering. Great item to collect or to use as an experimental aspect for your art work.
