LOVES Wooden Canoes
Wet coat of Georges semi-gloss. I think I'll switch to gloss. I think two more coats; some sand-scratching will show when this dries down.
Thanks Dave. You caught me right on the edge. I'm highly inclined to live with the bubbles in order to get this thing done (started about this time the winter before last, hard to believe). But I'll finish the other side with the George's I have - excellent color match to some original 70's Old Town green I had - and decide then. I had a first color match from George that was too blue, then bought a quart of one of his stock greens to mix with but they were too dark to get there. Second try on a custom match came out great so George now has a good match to the 70's OT green.Hi, MMM........So, I know how you feel with the " exact color match ". ...been there , done dat. I and many others have simply mixed what we must have using Epi product including some of the old professionals. I know the paint seems more expensive, but it covers so beautifully and I moved from fearing the finish and last of 5 coats the next morning , to can't wait to get to it in the morning. I think Epi color chart shows 7-9 greens and I bet if you were close with their stock item you could easily get their suggestion to get it right on with a simple mix. By the way, I use their thinner to get the flow perfect for my brushing style and pace. Each to his own, I accept, but for me a real fine resto job needs the same passion at the end as in the beginning.....not always an easy thing to do when you are the sole workman, but the results can be very satisfying if that is what you need to make the day worthwhile. Have fun . Dave
