Got bored, painted the boat...

Post by Mgraham »

I had some free time this afternoon, so I decided to try my hand at painting my boat. Comments, thoughts, or pictures of patterns of your own?

Great work! That's the first boat I've ever seen with the Kryptek camo pattern.
It looks awesome! :thumbsup2:

Got the boat out for the first time since paint and installing the large kit. I think it looks quite a bit better on the water than in the barn, more fun too. Thanks for the comments on the paint. Also here is a short video from the outing. https://youtu.be/rS5sor_f_yY" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Is this the hex camo stencil from RedLeg?

What colors did you use

What size pattern(s) did you get?

Yes, it is the hex camo stencils from redleg. I got the assorted stencil pack off of amazon, and the large hex stencil directly from redleg. The paint I used was the rust-oleum specialty camouflage paint, ultra flat. I used the green of the boat for my background color, then I used the medium bark stencil and the khaki paint over the whole boat. I put a layer of the branch stencil over that with army green. The final layer was the hex pattern, which I did in earth brown using all 3 small hex stencils and the large hex stencil. I didn’t really go for a specific pattern with them, just put them where it looked like they fit in best. The photo is before the hex pattern, the bark and branches are applied. Hope that helps.

I had some more free time and weather that was warm enough to paint, so I finished up painting the interior of the boat. It took quite a bit more time to do than the outside of the hull, due to all the corners. Now it just needs to really warm up for a few days so I can gatorglide the bottom.
