    Anyone have experience with Hammerrite paint, with hammer finish. How does it look and how did you apply? Thanks.

    Sprayed a tin once, came out OK. But hammerite is a pain to clean out of the gun and needs special thinners.
    Also if you don't do a good job of cleaning the gun, your next "smooth" paint job isn't. ](*,)

    You can get Hammerite on a spray can.

    You can also get stove enamel, for high temperatures, on spray cans, but not many colours to choose from
