    Can anyone share a picture of a canoe painted “Blind Green?” My spouse thinks it looks too dark by the sample sent.
    Thanks.

    Thank you. I didn’t find the color on WCHAs site, but did on another site and got what I need. Small color samples, especially for darker colors, are not very helpful.

    I was just painting a B.N. Morris with the "Blind Green". It seems like a odd name for a paint but here it is. Its a bit on the dark side but its still green! the lighting in the shop makes it look a bit different in each picture. The paint is the simi gloss and not the high gloss. The "paint leveling" liquid that they sent with the paint worked very well in helping to smooth the brush marks.

    Thanks so much for confirming in your pictures that it’s just the color that I’m looking for. Agree it’s an odd name, but beautiful!

    I imagine it refers to a duck blind and not the inability to see.
