Abstract

A method for forming a reproduction of a mu1ti~co1or orig~~ inal image includes the steps of electrophoretically forming a monochromatic image on an image receiving surface and subsequently forming at least one additional monochromatic image of a second color on the image receiving surface in registry with the first monochromatic image formed thereon.

A method for forming a reproduction of a mu1ti~co1or orig~~
inal image includes the steps of electrophoretically forming
a monochromatic image on an image receiving surface and
subsequently forming at least one additional monochromatic
image of a second color on the image receiving surface in
registry with the first monochromatic image formed thereon.

A well known electrophoretic sandwich is used and comprises
an electrophoretic developer material sandwiched between a
donor layer and a receiver layer. Usually the receiver
layer is the imaging surface. The image receiving surface
includes a solvent tackifiable polymer and/or in each image
forming step there are employed particulate marking part-~
ides comprising a solvent tackifiable polymer and a
colorant.

After the first, and before each subsequent image forming
step, the image then residing on the image receiving surface
is contacted with at least a partial solvent for the sol~~
vent tackifiable polymer present in the marking material
and/or the image receiving surface in order to adhesively
secure the image to the image receiving surface, In this
manner, the particles comprising the previously formed
image will not migrate away from the image receiving sur~~
face during the subsequent image forming step.
