TheDutchShipBuilder Posted December 23, 2013 Share #1 Posted December 23, 2013 Hello Everyone Most of you know me of my project: The Hermione La Fayette. I had some questions about painting and blackening, and thought I would also ask it hear instead of only in my post of the Hermione built. I need some suggestion on wich paint I need to choose. I have already got some advice to use Admiralty Paint, but I came across some built logs where people used Humbrol Paint. Which of these two do you recommend?, and also, which pensils are best to use to paint wood surface? Then I also need some advice of how to paint my boat, and how many times I need to paint it. I have not much experience with painting, so all help is welcome (especially how to paint the hull nicely) At last I had some question about blackening. I bought some metal blackening from Krick: Sadly I heard that this won't work on the cannon's I have in my kit: Do some of you have any experience with this and know if it will work or not?, and if it doesn't, what is the best way to make them black then? At last would it be nice if you have some tips and advice of how to blackening, never done this before I hope you guys can help me Cheers Nick Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
