Green Paint

A piece of green enamel paint has chipped off the sink in my Autosleeper Symbol. Has anyone any idea where I can get the same colour to patch it up?

Well this is one answer, but not a particularly helpful one I am afraid.

Can you find the piece that has chipped off?

If you can then I believe the colour can be accurately matched by many DIY stores as they have colour matching facilities.

If you cannot find the small piece then approaching the manufacturers should give you the code for the colour paint that they use - if it is an enamel paint you MIGHT be able to match it from the range that Humbrol do for model makers and that are sold through model shops - but that may not be as precise as the manufacture's code.

I hope that you can identify it easily.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

That is actually quite helpful. The cooker will have a manufacturer's name, so will check that and find out the colour code. It is a much used green, well, around ten years ago, so there should still be some about.

Thanks.

It's worth a look on ebay for a used one too.

The paint or the cooker

Only a tiny chip!

I'd just use any oil based primer and top coat if it before it goes rusty in a close colour for now, you might not even bother to fix it.

Oh, it has to be the exact colour! What are you thinking?

I am concerned about the rust setting in though.

AGA cookers do a small enamel patch kit of different colours, have used the black following the instructions it could almost have disappeared they have green but probably not a match for you but just making you aware that a product does exist

Thanks. It probably is a universal green - it is the same colour as the 'van sink, where there is also a chip.

A dab of green Hammerite will make it perfect , but get anything on it mean time, even a blob of nail varnish, but remove it before painting, Acetate (nail varnish remover) will be perfect for cleaning it before applying the new finish anyway.

It's a shame that vitreous enamelling isn't as popular these days, as thats what the green really paint is.
