Painting a medieval wooden ship under the waterline

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what "the white stuff" looks like when a wooden ship is in the water for a few months?

Or better , could have looked..


My idea was, painting with white or cream and thereafter weathering  with a wash of dilute green.


Examples of what I have in mind.

Since I only have experience with painting military models. I now have absolutely no idea whether this is correct or totally wrong.

After a few months in the water it would probably be supporting a fine growth of underwater weed - particularly if (as I suppose) it's the Golden Hind sailing into tropical waters.


But I don't think that would be very pleasant to look at - I agree with Druxey - do what you want to do.
