Process

A variety of factors make painting on large scale sails a complex process. The following cases demonstrate the careful planning and precise execution required:

Sailpainting process - ScalingImages are scaled up from a few cm across to over 75m in length. Images are then adjusted to adapt to the three dimensional curve of the sail.

 

Sail painting process - TranslucencySpecial application techniques have been developed taking advantage of the translucency of sail cloths, whilst maintaining absolute sharpness of outline with colour definition.

 

Sail painting process - trials & prototypesExtensive trials are made to guarantee the exact specification of ink and paint types to suit cloth and sail requirements.
