I'm in the middle of a guitar project and found something interesting:

one can add highlights to sprays, and get a hammertone.
No hammertone was applied, but a hammerish result was had :

You guys are killing me! I'll have to grab another one to do in pink with some of Analogman's Japanese transistors thrown in for good measure ;). I even have Subaru Cherry Blossom Red (Subaru Pink) lying around. I'll dig around and see if I can figure out how to do my own decals and do the whole thing in Kanji.

The Secret to Hammered finishes is to do it wrong. For other finishes, you spray it on drier than you think and layer the coats in. For hammertone, you spray it on wet and then do another wet coat before the first dries. As the first coat dries, it shrinks up some and creates those little dimples all over.

Although I voted for Glow paint - and I'm cut to the quick that you didn't do it - the green hammer finish will be pretty damn groovy. Like some old equipment you'd find in a mad scientist's lab.

Looking forward to seeing the finished article.

Don’t touch it. Beat up fuzz faces are killer.
You're a bit behind the times.

That's exactly why I already own Verde Green Hammertone! I restore and the rebuild old tools from time to time as well.

Hmm... there's usually a handful of battered Fuzz Faces on my local CL but none to be found at the moment.
