Man I am pissed now. Painted my box with a base coat of white and went back and did the X part of the box with blue. Got my jewel clear and polished and everything. Everything looked great, except I needed to go back and put on my final coat of white on the vents, back, etc. So, I get home from work and need to get this last coat on so I can let it dry overnight. I'm using Krylon Fusion paint for plastic by the way (with fanspray nozzle). So anyway, I had masked the blue "X" part off really good early today before work. I take the stuff out to my masked off area of the drive way and start to spray my final coat. By the time I finished the top of the box, I began to notice kind of a crackle look in some areas. Damn! Maybe it's too cold, I quickly took the pieces inside the house to dry. I'm not sure if the cold weather (I'm in Arkansas, so it's like 40 - 50 degrees at night right now), or maybe that I'm at the bottom of the can of paint or what, but now my flawless paint job is basically Fu#Ked. It's not that bad, but now I'm trying to decide what to do when it dries. It's not really bad, so I may be able to just spray another coat over it. Or, should I sand it lightly with a fine grit sandpaper first? This is my second box, and I used the same paint to do my gaming Xbox in red in the garage when the temp. was lower than it is now. Any suggestions on the best way to fix this? Any help is extremely appreciated.
