|Earth Pigments comparisons in preparation of painting the cloth skin of a Greenland Kayak.
These color samples are to compare online color samples with the actual colors resulting from painting them on a sample of polyester cloth. The cloth is the same material used to cover a Skin-On-Frame West Greenland Kayak as seen in a previous link on the front web page. There are extra pigments in the samples above, mainly blue and a couple greens which may be examined for possible coating the kayak.
