Now its like working inside a giant cream cake, rather than the grim black hole I'd become used to.
The remarkable difference in ambient light has given me pause for thought.
Right now I'm leaning towards using the light grey primer in the area that was the fish hold, rather than the bitumen paint I used in the aft accommodation space.
Pros for using a light coloured primer:
- Ambiance - As soon as I start painting, even in a small patch, the place will look brighter and will generally be more pleasant to work in
- Mess - That bitumen paint never really sets properly, so inevitably bitumen blobs spread throughout the rest of the boat - in the galley floor, on the deck, in my clothes, on visitors...
- Cost - Bitumen paint is substantially cheaper than the two pack epoxy paints
