wrinkle painted valve cover

I painted my valve cover black with Plasticoat wrinkle paint. It didn't wrinkle up as much as I had hoped because it was left out in the garage in below 50 degree weather. Let me know what you think.









Sorry for the lame phone pics

It's kinda hard to tell anything with the low quality pics. They just look black to me.

Will that paint hold up in the engine bay? Under heat?

Its recommended for painting heads/valve covers. I've used it before on a valve cover and it was fine.

If tyou decide to repaint it, put it the oven at the lower setting after painting it. It will reallywrinkle if you heat it up during curing.

I was thinking of doing that the first time. Would I have to remove all the paint that is on there to repaint it?
