I have a bathtub and sink both chipping to expose a sage green. Don’t know if it is steel or cast iron underneath, though the bottom of the sink resembles cast iron, but doesn’t have the same sound as a cast iron fry pan. Either way, the refinishing/painting appears to be new and poorly done (bought the house eight months ago) so I am not concerned about lead paint. Can I continue to use the tub without worry? Will the chipping just spread?
I'm sure you can use both without worrying about lead. But while the chipping will almost surely continue to spread, it just won't cause any harm when it does. It will just look ugly.
