I’ve had good success re-doing old planes using Valspar gloss black alkyd implement enamel along with their alkyd enamel hardener. Brushing it on insures a coat or coats that are way thicker than spray paint & the hardener results in a finish that looks, to me, like original japaning and is very tough.
