Aprapo of absolutely nothing, found this today which might be useful to someone.


Getting a good wrinkle finish is just about as easy as painting with any aerosol type finish. It is important that certain rules be observed:

Surface must be clean and dry. Clean means no oil, grease or fingerprints.
Be sure that the temperature of the paint can and the surface to be painted is between 70 and 90° F.
Spray with even strokes at a distance of 8 to 12 inches. Apply a fairly heavy coat.
Spray a second coat approximately 3 minutes after the first, also fairly heavy.
The wrinkling will appear gradually, requiring about 12 hours at room temperature to completely develop.
Experience seems to indicate that a better finish is developed when sprayed onto bare metal.

NOTE: When the temperature of the can is appropriate, shake can at least one minute and occasionally during use.

Thanks. I have a VTVM whose case could do with a strip and respray, so I'll give this a go in due course.
