Need black wrinkle paint, sprayable by airbrush

A discussion started in 2001 but continuing through 2017

Black Wrinkle Paint


RFQ: Hi there,

RFQ: I am restoring a collection of measuring instruments that originally have a black wrinkle (not crackle) finish, similar to that used on some old vehicle dashboards. The original finish was on Moore & Wright instruments.
I can find wrinkle paint in aerosol spray cans, but for this application I want to apply by airbrush, so it needs to be in ordinary tins or jars.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A. I am looking for a similar paint product. Since there has been no answers to this thread in almost 10 years, I am going to suggest getting a can of wrinkle black paint and depressurize the can then open it up with a saw or drill, and voila! You have wrinkle black paint for your airbrush! Thin as necessary, but remember that ANYTHING ADDED WILL AFFECT THE FINAL FINISH.
