That stipply black finish you see on vintage dashboards

Hi guys

I'm trying to find out how I can recreate that kind of stipply black finish you see on vintage dashboards. I'm not sure what it's even called so i'm struggling to find anything online that helps, and i've looked through the thread listings here but still can't find anything related.

So, i thought i'd register and ask here as you clearly have a wealth of knowledge at your disposal!

Does anyone know what that type of paint/finish is called, and how i can replicate it?

(Hope this is in the right forum!)

Cheers!
Ash
