Hi, I would like to know if there's an easy process of creating a wrinkle finishing on metal surfaces using ordinary paint (acrylics, water based, oils), i.e. baking the painted piece, adding some catalyzer to the paint, changing the paint's pH, etc. I'm aware of krylon brand and other manufacturers spray cans and powder application, but what I'm really interested is in a quick, "weekend variety" process. Thanks.

Spray cans is the easy way. Buy paint that is "wrinkle" paint and follow the instructions to the letter. Time between coats and maintaining very close to 90 degrees between the coat application direction is the key. Takes some practice.

Hi, Marcos. For the adventurous, please see letter 409 for a discussion of how wrinkle paint works and perhaps how you can make it.
