  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.

  Good luck...
