On all the stores we have visited, we can only get Dark Green, but we want
Light Green.

Has anyone seen such a colour?

Dark green is all they do Mike, how about getting a tin of white and mixing
the two for desired shade? As long as the white is also Hammerite it should
mix ok but may need a little of their thinners to make it a little easier.Of
course you would have to take note of the quantities if you wanted to
continually match colour.

Many thanks for the suggestion and we had thought of it. We have a tin of
white but it states quite clearly "Do not mix paints" :-((

Wouldn't lots of the chit chat on this newsgroup be better taken to email?

My garden gate is painted with Hammerite - that makes it on-topic, AFAIAC.

If you ARE going to mix it, you might care to consider mixing yellow
rather than white, or a combination of the two, for a more
satisfactory result. This presupposes that Hammerite make a yellow, of
course.

And tobacco is a plant, known as the noxious weed, which makes that on
topic as to its effects upon the human body. It's just as if we were
discussing Oleander or rue. AFAIC.

Yes, and gardeners smoke, drink beer - or wine - yadda, yadda, yadda,

Still has precious little to do with the cover for compost heaps,
though! (Unless you're still in the business of covering Judith's
arse, of course...) Are you mixing up threads here Anne?

Whatever, I'd prefer Judiths arse UNcovered (thats a wink)

That's right, Anne. Occasionally, we stray off-topic - but mostly we
stay on it because, as you may not yet know, beer comes from hops and
wine comes from grapes. Both subjects have been discussed here but as
you're rarely here, you've probably missed that. We're friends,
chatting and as happens at times, chat strays to other topics.
*Usually*, that remains friendly and those who don't wish to join in,
don't. What they don't do is bitch.

Still has precious little to do with the cover for compost heaps, though!

I hadn't realised until now what a really trivial little woman you are.

Lime Green would have been a superb colour. Will look out for a tin of
Yellow Hammerrite

Thanks for tip

I wouldn't try it, it needs well stirring before use, IMLE.
Only ever used the silver, on the drain inspection chamber cover.

I thought of an extremely witty response to this, and then decided
against. There are other ways to keep flies away from the barbecue.
