(1) Type of finish characterized by the presence of wrinkles of fairly uniform dimensions. The effect is obtained by inducing a pronounced but controlled tendency toward rapid surface dry. This finish is generally baked rather than air dried. The size of the wrinkle can be adjusted by variation in the type and amount of drier, type and amount of pigment, thickness of applied film and baking temperature. (2) A varnish or enamel film which exhibits a novelty effect similar to skin wrinkles.
