Viponds Tautflex DIY is a perfect way to restore old canvas awnings that are in reasonable condition. It’s ideal to paint over old canvas blinds that look out dated and to modernise to a colour that suits the rest of the building. It can be tinted to match any paint colour. Some customers have matched it to their Colorbond gutters in colours such as Colorbond Woodland Grey. Other ideas are to match it up to the same colour as the window frame or Colorbond fence often in colours like Colorbond Paperbark.
When rejuvenating old canvas awning that have stripes through them Viponds Canvas Block Out Undercoat is required if wanting to paint a white or light grey shade on top. If dark colours such a Colorbond Ironstone or Colorbond Monument are your final colours a canvas blockout undercoat is not required. An extra coat of the same colour may be required, however, if the stripes can be seen after applying three thin coats.
