Anybody able to share their experience with Krylon Fusion spray cans on Royalex canoes?
A local dealer told me not to bother with the “canoe spray paint” offered by manufacturers - it is the same.
Challenges: Get a colour that is close to the original. For touch ups, no problems, but trying to evenly coat a whole canoe takes several cans of paint. Personally, I don’t really care, so a couple of my canoes are a bit blotchy. I put a white waterline on a blue canoe, and it took three cans.
Thoe outer layer of royalex is vinyl, so anything that says it adheres to vinyl is fine (some store-brand paints are likely just as good)
that’s good news.
I just ordered 14 cans, 10 green for my 2 green canoes and 4 in red for my sons. I’m primarily a functionalist, any attempts at beauty would be negated by low water rapids, but I do want to cover up the underlying layers where exposed and spruce things up a bit. Thanks for the tips and encouragement.
Sorry to hear that, cause The stuff doesn’t work any better then regular paint. Yeah It might work for a "STATIC" item that just sits there. but on my Yack its gets used and the paint just scratches off.
eventually all the rocks I hit will be kryloned as well, then the next time there won’t be an issue, except for the red and green getting mixed up on my and my sons canoes.
good as real vinyl paint - nooo! Be it good enough - yup!
