They sold a really good one-part crackle paint, that smelt strongly of Naphthalene.

I remember a company that I thought was in Edgeware Road, it just had one small window with some cans of paint in. My dad bought some cans of crackle for our Practical Electronics 3" Oscilloscope. That crackle really was a crackle - like very tiny cornflakes on a tray. He also bought some Hammer Finish. Happy Days!
