Attempts to do a granular metal paint texture in Cycles

Hello, I am trying to do a texture to look like the photo below. It is a very granular black paint. It looks sandy with a bit of gloss


I tried to do this with a noise texture like below but the result is very bad… I am quite inexperienced in Cycles textures so help would be appreciated.


Any chance you might show us a reference image which is a bit larger than a postage stamp? :wink:

Quick and dirty try:


got this one

and there is the succo #1

but also another one call stippled
but don’t have the link for it
I can give nodes set up if needed let me know

can be use for metal paint brick
