Hull Paint

15 Jun

After another week of sanding I have painted the Ebihen 15.    I used an HVLP sprayer that I purchased on line from WoodCraft the Earlex HVLP Spray Station.  I can highly recommend this sprayer.  It worked to perfection within my inexperienced hands.   My first coat was put on too thick and I got a few runs, but after cleaning up and starting over again I was able to put on pretty good coats of paint.  I used about a quart and a 1/4 for the hull, thinned about 25%.  Coverage is good, and it is setting up well.  The System Three WR-LPU paint is easy to use and the results are good.   I don’t expect to have a high gloss finish, preferring a satin sheen.
