Does anyone know of any tactics for replicating this early 1900s color and texture?

OH! Right sorry, you said early 1900's colour and texture so it threw me off a bit, because as I now see in your picture you want to know a certain type of paint which has that mottled end result, which is still used by the by not just in the early 1900's Wink

Looks like standard green Hammerite paint (or "hammer finish" paint for other makes), should be easy enough to pick up a tin / spray at your local DIY place. Smiley

Stop that, you two!!

Are you wanting to refinish the object in the picture?

If so then it might be worth taking the time to take off the existing paint and starting from bare metal.

Hammerite type paints are best on an unpainted surface and will even deal with a bit of rust as long as it's not loose and flaky.

Also worth noting is the fact that they use a different solvent to most paint systems and can be a bit temperamental if you try to combine them with other types of paint.

The usual method of ensuring that the workpiece is thoroughly de-greased before you start also applies.

What is it, by the way?
