Seaman specialist painting

I believe you do paint the ship a bit as a seaman specialist but how often is that done?
Thanks
As often as it is deemed necessary. Don't worry most branches get the chance to demonstrate their artistic abilities at some stage. I am given to understand that nowadays most of the big bits(ship's side, superstructure etc) are painted by dockyard staff leaving only twiddly bits for Jolly Jack to tackle:)

Yeah I saw a video of sailors painting an anchor chain. I wouldn’t mind painting as long as it’s not every day.

There nickname used to be ‘dabbers’. As in dab paint here, dab paint there, dab paint every flamming where!!!
