Japanning

Glen Yoder
I japanned some planes years ago, when I was really into it. I think I bought japanning from Liberty Paints in New York but when I do a search now it comes up with a Benjamin Moore/hardware type store. The cap on the 60-1/2 I want to do has less than 50% japanning but otherwise the plane will end up beautiful, no pitting, model stamp is clear, just very lightly rusted. Where can I get japanning?
