Get Around Island Boat Tours asked me to paint a mural on their boat, on Magnetic Island - located just off the Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia. I’d never painted a mural on a boat before but any excuse to stick around on a tropical island paradise seemed good enough to me! Unlike any ordinary murals, there was quite a bit of technical research into paints, primers and components needed before any creativity could commence. For anyone thinking about doing the same, I’ve written a step by step guide on how to paint a mural on an aluminium boat!
1) Firstly, if there are areas that won’t be painted, use masking tape and paper to protect them. Also – it is recommended that you wear goggles and protective clothing as marine grade paints can be pretty toxic! Always thoroughly read the instructions and if don’t do anything you’re not sure of!
