looking for painting service that offers a crackle finish

hi guys,

I'm trying to find a US based guitar painting/finishing service that offers an old school 80s Charvel/BC Rich crackle.

Most pro services do not offer a crackle, either due to EPA restrictions or lack of experience. I have one vendor who's willing to do one, but he appears to have never done one before (based upon his gallery) and for the price he is asking I could just about buy an 80s original crackle on eBay..

so, was wondering if any of you had done a crackle effect yourselves or knew a painter who did them for a reasonable rate.

there's a company in the UK who sell Vreeble paint and have an awesome video on youtube, but that's about as close as I got so far...

any advice, hints, tips or leads gratefully received by this child of the 80s and lover of all things poodle rock..

Moved to the Vendors section as this isn't really a Classified Ad.

I would email Rodzo here on the forum. Not sure if he can do what you're asking for but you may want to ask as it looks like he does really nice work.

Progress...prior to the clear base before applying crackle.
Pic doesn't do it justice...the bottom is like a RFR fading into the orange. The pic makes it all look one color.
