Set to Stripe
After multiple coats of varnish, and four coats of white paint to the blades,
I left these three remi to cure for several weeks.
Once the white paint had reached a solid enamel finish,
it was time to mask for the chevron stripes.
Like so many other things, the key to a good oar stripe job is preparation.
Take a short cut in the masking process,
and the quality of the finished product will suffer.
Before bed I sanded the exposed white paint.
In the morning, I'll brush on a few coats of the colors I've chosen
for these three remi.
Given enough cure time, these should be ready to make their
debut trips during Valentine's Day.
