I’m not even kidding.
Our irrigation system just turned on (it’s on an autotimer) and covered my DIY project on the patio. I could seriously scream right now, I’m so angry.
REALLY hoping that they will dry and I can finish them – I only had the base coat completed. 🙁
Anyone have experience with crackle spray paint?

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. 🙁

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.

So, I’m doing this on wooden birdhouses. The first two coats were on bare wood and in Gold, the crackle top coat is Ivory. I don’t think I went thick enough with the crackle coats, because in some places it didn’t even crackle and in others, there is some tiny fractured lines.
I’m going to give them another two coats tonight and hope they turn out nicely – otherwise looks like I’ve got no choice but to use them solid ivory.
(lucky me, the water didn’t ruin them – when I posted this, I could see water stains but they dried perfect, other than the lack of crackle.)

PS – I’ll post photos, I’ve been taking them throughout but having issues with my uploading from the camera.
