A variety of factors make painting on large scale sails a complex process. The following cases demonstrate the careful planning and precise execution required:
Images 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.
Special application techniques have been developed taking advantage of the translucency of sail cloths, whilst maintaining absolute sharpness of outline with colour definition.
Extensive trials are made to guarantee the exact specification of ink and paint types to suit cloth and sail requirements.
We also offer a specialist graphic design service focused on ultra large format sailpainting, onto all the latest high-tech sailcloth materials.
