Having a bit of trouble with my handles, I'm using Plastikote Gloss, I had one of them perfect until got marked, so gave it a very light sand p1200, degreased, rinsed with water and left to dry. Painted it again and got wrinkling on the paint, got the same on the door catch also.

The handle was warmish when I sprayed would this make a difference?

Cheers,
Stu.

With plasticote it says recoat within 3 hours or after 36 or paint may wrinkle, maybe leave it couple of days and try again, hope that helps some.

when you sand it, you are taking off the top dry layer so to speak and exposing the softer paint underneath depending on how long it was left to dry.

also plasticote can soften up when it is warmed up:ILU:

as said, leave it longer between coats and lots of light coats are better than a few heavy onesT: dries harder
