Rather than use some old junk with an uncertain sheen, why not go with a premium flat lacquer?

Note: The image says satin on the can, but it is flat lacquer. They re a great company to do business with and I ve bought it so I know.

Thanks Rich. I’m not familiar with that brand, but I see your point about just buying some new lacquer..

But at the same time, lacquer never goes bad. Shoots, it doesn’t even have to be stirred… So I wouldn’t call it “junk”.

The can that I have, maybe I shouldn’t have disparaged it… I’ve been saving it for just such an occasion as this.. It’s thick on the bottom with the flattening agent, but I’m just not sure how much additives I can get away with…

If I could find “flat bronze” in a rattle-can, I would just use that… The base doesn’t really matter… But “flat” spray paint has limited color choices.
