What material is the birdcage made from the reason I ask is because I have done crafts that envolve metal and spray painting . When I was a novice I used the incorrect spray paint (not your case) and ending up with a distressed crackle craft . However when I re sprayed the surface it looked good however the areas were not all fine and smooth since you could tell different textures .


However for the wood birdcage, you will have to reapply the base coat again allow it to dry than proceed with your DIY  birdcage.  Hope you post pictures once your cage is complete.

I’ve never used crackle spray paint, just the normal crackle paint that you apply with a brush.  ๐Ÿ™

I have used the crackle spray paint on a smooth wood surface.. it looked great I loved it. Just make sure to spray it on some scrap paper or something before starting.. sometimes its runny on the 1st spray or so. Also its better to spray far away and then move closer when you see how it is looking… spraying too close makes it clump.
