I've painted several things with wrinkle finish paint. I've
found that there are two things that will affect the quality
of the finish: even coats of paint and HEAT. It may be a
challenge to achieve a uniform wrinkle on a largish part
such as a dash.
Warm the dash with a hair dryer or a heat gun before you
spray it. Once it is nice and warm, spray on a generous
*even* coat of paint and follow it with your heating implement
of choice. Better yet, enlist the help of a friend and have
them heat the area you have just sprayed.
If you are careful, you will get a nice even wrinkle.
