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.

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.

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.

Nothing different than I would have done. Have you tried a different can of spray?

No, all I have is the Krylon. But I had an idea. Went down to Home Depot and got a small can Valspar Exterior. Rolled it on and it's looking promising. I'm going to do the same procedures as if I was spraying and I'll keep ya'll informed on the progress and how it turns out.

I meant a different can of the same stuff. Are you talking about paint? Valspar what?

Looks like moisture bubbling to me.

Strato is right. I would try a primer first, then paint.
