Definitions for "Layering"
A propagating by layers.
This is a form of asexual plant propagation. It is done by covering a low-growing stem with a enough soil to hold it securely in place (the amount of soil depends on the size stem and how much stress is on it, but it usually needs to be a few inches deep). The tip of the stem should be free of dirt by at least two or three inches. The stem should not be cut from the plant. Eventually, if the layering is successful, roots will form from one of the nodes under soil. When the roots feel secure, the new plant can be cut from the parent plant.
A propagation technique in which shoots/roots are encouraged to grow on a branch of a parent plant
Best method of dressing warmly. Inner layer of clothing is a wicking fabric such as polypropylene, pile, or Thermax. Next layers consist of whatever warm clothing you have; a synthetic fleece jacket is ideal. Down jackets and wool sweaters are also good. Outer layer is a shell, which blocks wind and rain. Layers can be removed and added as conditions change.
A principle that applies to "dressing for success" in the outdoors: Dressing in at least three layers of clothes permits travelers to add a layer when it gets cold and remove a layer when it gets hot.
The technique of dressing in many layers of thin clothing, which traps warm air between the layers. Usually consists of thermals, fleece, and Goretex. More information: staying warm
The ability to place or stack two or more sounds on the same area of the keyboard to create a denser sound.
Recording (or playing) a musical part with other several similar sound patches playing simultaneously to add more body or fullness to the recording.
Layering is a technique used by hairdressers to change the thickness of the hair, creating either a thinning or thicker appearance. In this way the hair can be given a fuller appearance, more texture and movement.
A method of allocating automatic reinsurance among several reinsurers. Using this method, reinsurance is ceded in layers. The layers are defined in terms of amounts of insurance. One reinsurer will receive all reinsurance up to the limit of the first layer. A second reinsurer will receive all reinsurance in excess of the first layer up to the limit of the second layer, and so forth, depending on the number of layers. See First Excess, Layer, and Second Excess.
Risks that have high limits or high exposure to loss are often protected by purchasing policies to cover limits in layers. The first layer of coverage is called the primary layer and responds first to loss. When that limit has been exhausted, the second and subsequent layers respond. Because of the structure of layering, the second layer and above are normally much less expensive than the primary and, therefore, this method of protection can be cost effective.
A method of dividing reinsurance coverage among multiple reinsurers by allowing one reinsurer or a pool of reinsurers to cover all cases in excess of an insurer's retention limit up to a specified amount. See also first excess and second excess.

Pouring different layers of colored wax.
Pouring two or more layers of colored wax.
Process of pouring two or more layers of coloured wax.
The process of assembling a card placing your art work on one or several additional pieces of complimentary cardstock prior to adhering to the final greeting card. Many different kinds of cardstock, papers, doilies, glittery contacts etc can be used in this process.
Used in paper mache, the process of repeatedly placing paper and glue on a surface.
A conceptual structuring of communication protocols. A layer is defined in terms of its communnication protocol to a peer layer in another entity, and the services it provides to the next higher layer in its own entity.
May be achieved with numerous combinations of entities. For example, 100 percent of the shares of an IBC being owned by the first trust, which has as its sole beneficiary a second trust.
the technique of compositing several video elements, one over another, to create motion graphics or a complex animation.
The technique of compositing several elements, one over another, to create a complex animation. This is usually done with a Digital disk recorder to avoid degrading the images.
Layering and wet-on-dry blending are two terms for the same blending technique. To layer, thin one color to translucency and paint it on top of the other color. Once the translucent paint is dry, paint another layer on, but leave an edge of the first layer showing. By building up many thin layers in this way, the transition appears smooth to the eye. Layering is a more laborious process than wet-blending but gives potentially smoother results.
Consideration of fore-ground, middle and background in an exhibit view and introducing various vertical elements to give greater visual depth.
(v) A scheme by which the various graphic elements of a drawing can be grouped together in the CAD database. This facility _is used most often to control what is seen _or editable on the screen and what is printed or plotted. Layering in most systems is nonhierarchical.
n. In computer graphics, the grouping of logically related elements in a drawing. Layering enables a program user to view, and work on independently, portions of a graphic instead of the entire drawing.

Layering refers to a way of presenting data so that the reader may look at information in both summary form and in detail. This allows readers to focus on whatever level of information suits their needs best.
Writing articles in a non-linear manner, with a primary, or most basic layer, read first, then the reader can jump into deeper layers of various stories/articles.

This occurs in tanks when a high density fuel is mixed with a low density fuel.
separation of fuel oil mixture of different densities into two layers in a tank
A distance-handling maneuver, which is particularly useful when a group of obstacles is clustered tightly together. The handler directs the dog to execute one obstacle while another obstacle is between him and the dog (the handler is staying on the outer “layer”). In this close-quarters situation, pushing in toward the correct obstacle could actually cause the dog to push away from that obstacle to an incorrect obstacle.
The process of interrelating the appropriate and applicable principles of shaping must effect the application of the other principles.[Back to Glossary Index
applying one pencil color stroke after another, building numerous layers of colors.
Adding multiple layers of superimposed video.
applying one layer of opaque or transparent material (e.g., tissue papers, paint, glazes) on top of another
The relationship between the initial numbers derived for a character (e.g. attributes) to the numbers eventually used most commonly in play (Effectiveness Values; e.g. combat to-hit values). The more steps of derivation, the more the system is said to be layered.
The combination of a number of policies which each add to the total limit available by attaching above the limits which came before (under it). Layering applies mostly to large companies with the need for capacity not afforded by a single Insurer.
