  • Patent number: 10864769
    Abstract: A painting method produces a realistic depiction of light areas, dark areas, an appearance of reflections, color gradation, textures, form and space, and an illusion of depth by overlapping the 1st, 2nd and 3rd planes. The image is created as all these formations emerge simultaneously. An oil or water coating and a corresponding oil or water base paint are prepared. A base having a glossy smooth surface is obtained. Both sides of the base are soaked and then any excess liquid is removed. The coating is applied over the wetted, glossy, smooth surface and a layer of paint is applied over the coating. Paint and coating merged into s single entity. A tool is then used to redistribute the mixture of paint and coating to create gradients of color to complete an image.

  • Patent number: 8975326
    Abstract: An aerogel includes a plurality of supramolecular structures bound to one another. Each supramolecular structure includes a carbon nanotube (CNT) or graphene type structure having an outer surface, and a plurality of polymers or aromatic molecules secured to the outer surface of the CNT or graphene type structure. The plurality of polymers or aromatic molecules have at least one crosslinkable structure. The supramolecular structures are crosslinked together by chemical bonding between the crosslinkable structures. The polymers can be block copolymers including at least one conjugated polymer block and at least one block of a crosslinkable non-conjugated polymer that provides the cross linkable structure, where the conjugated polymer block is non-covalently bonded to the outer surface of the CNT or graphene type structure.
