Painting Camouflage with Krylon Spray Paint

Don’t get spotted in the wild!  Just in time to prepare for the upcoming hunting seasons we have Krylon Camouflage Paint made with Fusion for Plastic® Technology that can assist you in staying out of sight and achieving your the best shot possible.

Available at both stores in 4 colors (Camo Green, Camo Khaki, Camo Brown and Camo Black) and @ $6.78 a spray can.

Camouflage is all about gaining an advantage over the target by blending into the environment, giving you the greatest advantage at being successful.  There are countless patterns of camouflage meant to blend into your terrain and vegetation but stick to mimicking the environment you’re hunting in.  It doesn’t make much sense to use camouflage on clothing and equipment but leave out  your gun.

Below is an easy way to accomplish a custom camouflaged gun for any terrain.

You can paint camouflage using the instructions on the video below from the YouTube channel InnerBark Outdoors to paint coolers, vehicles, firearms, and more! Want to know more about InnerBark Outdoors? Visit their website HERE and follow them on social media!

Camouflage Painting Tips

  • The best way to camouflage an object is to match it to the surroundings in which it will be located
  • Use colors in the same family that work well together
  • Start painting with the lightest color and move to the darkest color
  • Look to nature and use local tree leaves, ferns and branches as your stencils
  • Take your time. Let coats fully dry! Since there is a lot of overlapping, small mistakes won’t show
  • As with any spray paint, use several light coats instead of one heavy coat
  • Always read the directions before applying the spray paint

When coming in to take advantage of our stain sale be sure and talk with one of our Paint & Stain Specialists about proper prep and application for your stain project or click HERE for a step by step instructional blog post on properly staining your wood deck.

How to Properly Stain a Deck

A deck is a huge investment for any home owner. Making sure it stays clean and protected will insure it has a long life. With the proper cleanup and a proper application of stain you can avoid costly repairs and regular degradation that many wood deck owners experience.  Once completed you can restore your old deck or further protect a newer deck.  Taking this time on an annual or bi-yearly basis will have you dodging the need for major repairs, leaving it protected from weather and allowing the natural look of wood to shine through.

Prep and Cleaning

This is the most important part of staining your deck.  Do it correctly and be patient with drying and you will be rewarded with an easy staining experience.

Clear your deck of all your potted plants, outdoor furniture and other obstacles on your deck. Blow off or sweep the deck clean of any debris, leaves and dirt.  Cover all perimeter plants and shrubs located around the deck with painter’s plastic or drop clothes.

Once fully cleaned, check the deck boards that may need to be replaced. Deck boards that are rotten, severely warped or have large splits should be replaced.  Look for nails that may have raised up and use larger nails to re-secure the boards. Minor splits can be sanded down using an orbital sander to smooth the surface.  Check you gaps between boards for buildup of old leaves, pine needles and dirt removing with a flat plastic putty knife or straight edge. Re-sweep the deck and hose the surface down to remove any stubborn debris.

Suit yourself up with the proper protection with gloves, old clothing and eye protection when working with any chemical cleaners and following the manufacturer’s directions, apply a wood cleaner such as 30 Second Cleaner or SuperDeck Wood Cleaner with a pressurized garden sprayer being careful not to let the solution dry.  Agitate the cleaner into the wood with a long handled stiff bristled brush for 10 -15 minutes and then rinse off with water. Allow deck to fully dry.

Once fully cleaned let’s bring back the color and vibrancy that you remember when the deck was first installed. SuperDeck Wood Brightener should do just that. Hopefully you still have all your protective gear so make sure your pressurized garden sprayer is cleaned of any previous chemicals and use it to apply the wood brightener in the same way as the cleaner. Don’t let the solution dry and agitate the cleaner into the wood with a long handled stiff bristled brush for 10 -15 minutes and then rinse off with water.

Rinse off the plastic you used to protect the surrounding plants and store away for use when staining.

Allow deck to dry fully for at least three days before moving on to staining.

Staining the Deck

If you don’t have a favorite stain and color there are many to choose from so we advise getting some advice in our stores from one of our paint specialists for your proper environment and for maximum protection.  Take advantage of our annual exterior stain sales that starts around Memorial Day and runs through June. It will undoubtedly save yourself some needed cash and allow for some new deck accessories.

These are the most popular of exterior deck stains we stock and sell. Click images for direct link to manufacturer’s website.

Penofin stain and coatings logo

Cover the plants to protect them from any splattering.

Stir the stain thoroughly and pour the stain into a paint tray. Apply a THIN coat of stain using a paint roller attached to a long handle rolling it in the direction of the boards making sure the stain does not puddle or pool.

With a paint brush get all the ends of the boards stained and allow the deck to fully dry.  Repeat this process at least two more times utilizing multiple thin coats rather than a single heavy coat.

Once you have completed the process inspect the deck fully for any areas you might have missed, paying attention to the ends of boards, stairs, railings or other attached wood structures.

Now is the fun part!  Remove the plastic protecting the plants, return your outdoor furniture to its place and start planning that summer bar-b-que to show off your hard work.

If you clean and stain your deck every 1-2 years you will have a deck that will stay protected, looking new and perfect for your outdoor enjoyment. Have questions? Come in and ask to talk with one of our paint & stain specialists or give us a call.  We’d be happy to help!

Countervailing Duty on Canadian Softwood – The Platinum Tape, a blog by Kelly Fox

Friends and Neighbors,

After months of speculation, it finally happened, the Trump administration announced that the countervailing duty on Canadian softwood would be set at 19.88%.  If this was the end of it, we could let the smoke clear and start anew in the weeks and months ahead.  Unfortunately, this is not the case so we have a long protracted fight on our hands that will keep the consumer doing what they always do, pay the higher price.  Let us look at what we do know and what we can expect.

Through the regulatory process and our part of the NAFTA agreement, both sides will get the opportunity to state their case in an appeals process.  The final ruling on this issues is not expected until sometime in January 2018.  If history is a good teacher on these issues, the Canadians have almost always won the argument.  Now that we know the fight is a long way from over, let us get down to the more immediate impact on our community.

The first thing I looked following the announcement this morning were the currency markets.  As expected, the Canadian dollar declined.  In a part of the country that depends on Canadian tourism to support our local economy, the weak dollar does not help.  Seeing the restaurants full and the Black Ball moving at capacity is good for all of us that call Clallam County home.  At the end of the day, our business is only as strong as the local economy and every part helps.

The second thing I looked at this morning was the lumber markets to see what was happening.  Surprisingly, everything has remained fairly calm with very little commotion in price files. Of greater concern to us, the impact of this announcement on supply has yet to be fully felt.  We know that we are running into shortage issues in the current market.

If any big producers decide to take drastic action, like not selling into the US market it could leave us very short on supply.  We are conducting a survey to find out how you would like us to respond in the event supply of the #2 & Better Premium we currently offer becomes unavailable.  If you would like to help us, please click here.

The last thing I did this morning was grab the phone and ask for input from our buyers, our supplier partners, and our network.  I learned that most everyone is in the same position as we are with more questions than answers.  That consensus opinion is to not take speculative positions on excess inventory in the near term.

We will follow the market and replace what we sell and try to maintain our business to be nimble with the market.  This will keep our pricing current and eliminate the potential for big profits and big losses.  With that position, we will be relying heavily on our buyers to ensure that we are refilling our stock more frequently in addition to our vendor managed programs.

Like everything in life, the dust will settle on this issue.  When it does, we will be here taking care of our friends and neighbors just as we have been for 111 years.  As always, if you have any questions or concerns about the market; we are here to help.  Please follow our blog or friend us on Facebook for updates as they become available.  I can also be reached via email at kellyf@lumbertradersinc.com or in the store @ 360-452-8933 for more pressing concerns.

Thanks,

Kelly
