Painting & Airbrushing

Painting

Standard Painting

Quickbuild Workshop

We can paint your canoe or kayak almost any colour you want.  Red and green are very traditional colours. Orange and blue make a different statement. Be bold! Pick the colour you like.

Normally we apply 3 coats of paint – sufficient to ensure that colours have their full richness. We can apply extra coats of paint if you wish.  At our shop, we fully paint the hull, including the part that is hidden under the gunwales.

Colours:

Our standard palette has 49 colours – plenty to chose from.

We also have a specialty palette that includes metallic paint. Call the shop for details.

Custom Painting

Custom Red and Cream Paint Job

For those who see their canoe as art in itself, we offer custom colour painting. This includes up to 3 colours with each colour to be applied to a large area with linear edges or specific structures.

More than 3 colours and patterns with curved or multi-faceted edges are considered artwork. Please see the custom artwork section.

Custom artwork

It’s your boat. Decorate it the way you want to.IMG-20120821-00101

We can paint, varnish or decorate your canoe, kayak or paddleboard in almost any way you want. We can work with your design or you can have our artist create a unique design for you. Our decorative services include hand and airbrush painting, metal engraving (e.g. brass plaques), stenciling, vinyl and real gold leaf lettering.  Wood engraving, laser burning and inlay of wood and stone are also beautiful alternatives.

Some historical manufacturers logos are available as decals for purchase.  If you wish, we can paint the original manufacturers logo instead of using a decal. This would be charged as custom artwork.
