Hammer paint (or hammered paint) is a special finish with a surface that looks like hammered metal when dried. It is also known as hammertone. The slightly iridescent areas are caused by the different orientation of very small shiny aluminium particles which are suspended in the paint. To make the "hammered" effect more pronounced, a small percentage of silicone oil is added during manufacture.

Hammer paint is often used to beautify technical apparatus as the optical advantage of hammer paint is that surfaces look acceptable even if the underlying surface is not flat and smooth. To get a regular paint to look smooth the surface would have to be prepared first, for example by filling, sanding, grinding or polishing. With hammer paint, this step can often be omitted.

Technical note:- If you wish to use a primer this finish is only compatible with etch primer, do not use this product to overcoat on top of any Paragon primer or undercoat products other than the Paragon etch primers. Our hammer finish is a mild pattern – this is intentional. The method of application can affect the development of the pattern, aerosols tend to smooth it out the most, followed by brush application, and spray gun gives the most hammered effect.

I needed some paint to match some 40 year old tool cases. This was the perfect match.

Arrived on time and, as with the rest of the Paragon range, it’s quite easy to use. I found it better to thin about 20% with HVLP to achieve a noticeable hammer finish. Colour shade a little brighter than the online picture.

Advantages: Easy to use and a durable finish with good coverage of less than perfect preparation.

Disadvantages: Unusual response to flatting with wet and dry. I found that dry fine aloe produced better results.

I was looking for a replacement for Hammerite light blue which they no longer make. The Paragon version is lighter and appeared not to have as obvious a hammer effect as the Hammerite, however I haven't used it on a good smooth surface so may not have given it a fair trial. It dries quickly and appears fairly tough.

Advantages: Covered old paint and bare metal very well with one coat.

Disadvantages: High postage cost if buying just one can.

This is nice paint which covers well with a compressed air spray gun. The shade of light blue is very pleasing. I'm using it for a car dashboard which is now looking awesome. I also tried it on an electric guitar body too, but the effect isn't quite right for that particular item. That's not a fault of the paint it's just that a hammered finish suits some things better than others.

Advantages: The hammered effect when sprayed with a compressed air spray gun is very effective and would disguise an imperfect surface well, although I haven't yet seen the final effect after lacquering.

Disadvantages: The hammered texture is nice to the touch, but if you want a smooth finish it's probably not the paint to use.

Quick delivery, well packaged and good price. Stunning range of colours.

Advantages: I'm not an expert but the Pragon hammer paint was pleasant to use and easy to get a nice even finish.

Disadvantages: Too early to say
