How can I spray my boat in camouflage color?
I have a duck hunting boat I want to spray in camouflage color. Can your products do this, and what would I need to order?
The simplest option is if a combination of grey shades are suitable for you, but just about any other color is certainly achievable. You can simply mix our clear products with either our grey or black Poly Powder, along with your color tint to apply the majority of the thickness. Your color tint can be automotive paints or pigments, or they can simply be any oil based alkyd enamel paint. After the overall coating is applied, you would then apply the final coat without the Poly Powder if the color isn’t quite what you want. For the camouflage, you would then apply the contrasting color(s) in spots. Avoid over spaying the blotches to avoid drips.
The process using a texture hopper isn’t very difficult at all. Since all the coats would be far thicker than paint, you really don’t need to worry about scratches (even with just the single coat of your contrasting colors).
Texture for slip resistance is usually done as the last build coat (final coat using powder). You drop air pressure, and sometimes thicken the product a bit more, or change the tip. This creates more of a coarse splatter. You then simply fan the surface and let the droplets cure as individual bumps. The final color coat(s) will smooth this out a bit, so you apply a bit more aggressive texture than you want in the end. Once you have the splatter coverage, stop spraying, since continued spraying will smooth the coating.
You can also provide slip proof texture by broadcasting a fine to coarse sand onto the final color coat. Depending on the granule size, a large salt or spice shaker works fine to get even coverage.
