Unhappy Why is It Doing This?

I'm painting my trim pieces and on 2 of them the paint keeps wrinkling for some reason. Does anyone know why? I'm using krylon paint and I sanded them before painting. Thank you for any help.

You ever put a sticker on there? It looks like some weird residue is messing your paint up. Clean with a tack cloth, then denatured alcohol to be safe. That worked for me.

I've never put a sticker on it and its doing the same thing on the trim that goes around the radio and A/C controls. I'll try that though and see how it works

Agreed. I'd think there is a residue of some sort on there. I used the same stuff, didn't even sand it down when I did mine.

Triple 0 steel wool is what I used to prep. Worked fantastic.

Sure, I cleaned the parts, then sanded them with 400 to give the paint something to stick to, cleaned them again, sprayed on the first coat and let it sit overnight (ran out of daylight), then this morning lightly wet sanded with 1000, cleaned them, and applied a second coat and that's when this mess began.
