Hi Everyone,

I would like to use the color buff on my Fair American but I'm not sure exactly what shade this is - looks like it varies all over a range between a tan and a yellow color.

Can anyone point me to the proper color?

Thanks, Wally

If you mean on the outer bulwarks, then the color would be yellow ochre. The inner bulwarks would most likely be red ochre. The yellow ochre was a dullish yellow while red ochre was a darker red color.

Freshly painted ? A week old.? a year old? in the north or the tropics? Behind the stacks or ahead? I'd just paint it something close and make up a story to fit. I hope I don't sound too sarcastic but there can be so much variation. You could take a picture but the color would depend on the exposure,film type, light conditions and all. Bill
