Hand Painting Wine Glasses Answered

I have always used Folkart Enamel paint to paint my wine glasses and never had any problems.  

This paint is now changing to the GLOSS only in stores, I can't find it in the non-gloss anymore.    Why does the paint start cracking when I put on the 2nd coat of paint? 

I'm cleaning with alcohol first, waiting 30 minutes, then painting and it still want adhere to the glass with a 2nd coat.

See picture below.

I use this marbling technique on glasses. works really well but non of it looks exactly like one another and you'll have to hand wash.

You might want to add something to restore the flexibility, better flow, and drying properties to the gloss paint http://www.dickblick.com/products/liquitex-acrylic-mediums/

Thank you! I just wonder why it's not working.. I may need to try a different enamel paint.
