Default Remember Acetylene before Clear?

Hey guys, I'm trying to find this technique of using acetylene char(raw acetylene gives off black floaty char) under clear but over paint. I saw it once on a bike build off show years ago, and I'm not having any luck with google. I can't even remember the name of the show...

Basically, the builder laid his base coat, used straight acetylene to add "smoke streaks" to the base. When he added the clear, it looked amazing and was a great effect.

So if you have any info on what that's called, or the name of the show, lemme know.

Or if any braver folks want to try it.... GL!
