Unpainted Canal Art Products

Perfect for those with a skill for painting or those wishing to customise their canal items to the colours of their barge.

Keep them in their natural galvanised finished or do you fancy having a go at painting them yourself? A big project or a new hobby, our Unpainted asseccories are just the thing.

Please note most of this collection is intended for decorative purposes only.

    This narrowboat style jug takes the form of the traditional style but remains completely simplistic in its decoration. With decorative ridges found at different heights on the jug, its simple design does not mean that it detracts away from having character and charm. With a large handle, it makes pouring water easier, or if you wish, simply keep this jug as a decorative piece.
