    Thecrystoleumfrom "crystal" + "oleum" (oil), the process was a method of applying colour to analbumen print, popular from c.1880 to c.1910.
     
    Analbumen printwas pasted face down to the inside of a concave piece of glass. Once the adhesive (usuallystarchpaste orgelatin) was dry, the paper backing of the print was rubbed away, leaving only the transparent emulsion on the glass.
     
    The image was then coloured by hand, usingoil paints. Another piece of glass was added to the back and this could also be coloured by hand. Both pieces of glass were bound together creating a detailed, albeit fragile, image. The process was derived from the 18th centurymezzotintprocess.
