Default Re: Crackle paint

In the 1960's there used to be a company (I think in Tottenham Court Road London), called 'Ucan'
They sold a really good one-part crackle paint, that smelt strongly of Naphthalene. It required no special techniques, & was simply brushed or sprayed on.
It produced an excellent hard-wearing finish, that looked very much like that used on RAF equipment.

Does anyone know if there's anything like it still available?
