What hull is it? Best way is to cover with tissue paper applied with dope, allow to dry and then cover with a second coat of dope, light sanding and apply a finish coat of an enamel or acrylic colour coat. If you do a search on the site, ACTion did a write up of how to, well worth printing and keeping.
