I used latex paint, then another coat of epoxy.
I see it has been a while since you finished your kayak. How's the colour holding up? I was thinking about using fabric dye on my deck but came across a web page of a guy saying that fabric dye fades too quickly on wood but he wasn't using it for kayaks. Is the colour protected by the epoxy and UV varnish? Should I just spend the extra money and buy aniline dye specifically for wood?
The fabric dye faded in one season.
The boat is now pink. :lol:
But while we are on the topic of my boats.... Where's my sirocco?
I thought it looked more like light red. Or puce, with a touch of cerise. :lol: :wink:
Mix purple and brown, thats what color it is. Looks like shit, Im painting it.
Who dug up this thread anyway?? :roll:
In all honesty, Darren's right - the boat is not pink. I once had a (sort of) purple hat that faded to pink, so that was my thought when I posted that.
The purple was really nice and vibrant when the boat was new. I'd say the fading added more of a grey-ish tinge - more of a weathered look I guess. Not quite what I would have expected... but it fared better than my hat.
OK if I drop it off tomorrow evening?
instead of 'da pink',
it's actually 'da red',
but a few letters got mixed up.
(heh heh, sorry)
