General Ship Repair

The General Ship Repair structure is now complete and occupying its spot on the pier. Once the core and the photo wallpaper editing was done, the rest of the structure was fairly straightforward. The only tricky part was dulling down the gloss photo paper without getting a frosty haze in the process. Through trial and error I found that an acrylic dulling spray (Krylon) applied in three or four light coats did the trick. Dullcote didn’t work with this ink and paper combo. With photo wallpaper always test the dulling process on test samples as every ink type reacts differently. With some Dullcote is fine, with others you get frostiness or a color change. Next on the project list detailing the pier.
