Welcome to the world of traditional narrowboat decoration. A two part study of the two main aspects of this folk art. Part one deals with the painting of a water can, showing how the Roses and Castles are applied. Preparation, types of paint and techniques are clearly shown from start to finish. Examples of the art from former boatyard painters show how the format developed and some regional differences.

Part two deals with the graining and scumbling of a traditional working boat cabin. Once again all techniques and tool types are shown, with good demonstrations of various finishes.

The two films presented here were originally released as “Floating Castles” and “Traditional Transformation”. This volume is a digital re-edit of these films to form one extremely comprehensive volume allowing the beginner to tackle these wonderful folk arts.
