Three Striped Remi
Here are three of the remi that have recently emerged from the Gondola Adventures workshop (also known as my messy garage).
The two in the back are what we call "color on clear" remi.
The oar is varnished, then masked off for striping.
The one in front was so beat up, with discolored bare wood,
that we sanded it down to bare wood and added a dark, rich chocolate stain, and then sealed that in with varnish before applying the unusual silver chevron striping.
All three remi are Saverio Pastor creations.
After the painted stripes have cured and stabilized,
everything will be sealed in with a few more coats of varnish.
Sometimes the difference is in the details.
Special thanks to Evan Kliewer for doing so much diligent work to make these remi look so good.
