Having done a couple of woodstrip builds, for my next build wondered about making an all black sea kayak. Not sure yet if it will be cedar strip or S and G.
Anyone any advice on adding opaque colour to wooden kayaks. Staining the wood would not be sufficiently opaque. Do I add colour to all the resin layers, just the fill coats, the last varnish coats or simply paint on top?
Wondered what the effects of scratches on the finish would look like, especially the bottom, depending on how I did the colouring. Presumably adding paint last will scratch off easiest, but would be the easiest to touch up if needed.
Thanks in anticipation.
