The crew continues to make wonderful progress on the first half of the first Viking ship while we continue out wait for the return of more pieces from the galvanizer. Today, the painters completed the blended base coats and then applied the first glaze on the wood planks. The result popped the grains very well. Another darker glaze will really make it shine. They will begin applying the colours on the top plank and the shields as well as painting and glazing the barnacles and applying a little algae growth along the water line.
