Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums General Colour matching for GRP Deck Re: Re: Colour matching for GRP Deck


All I can say is…it’s difficult.

Some years ago I bought some gelcoat and filler powder and a couple of pots of pigment from Blue-Gee. I was trying to match the blue on my old Enterprise. The trouble is it is one colour when it is liquid, another colour once it had gone off and another colour when rubbed down flush with the surrounding deck. It gets darker at each stage and I never got it right and once it has set and you have rubbed it smooth you don’t want to dig it out again and make the damage worse.

Maybe there is a clever way to get the colour right but I have not found it.
