I need a spray paint genius!

 I'm posting these pics as a sneak peek into my new project and also, what in the world is WRONG with my spray paint. 
Why am I getting these crackly spots all over my chairs?  I'm using Rustoleum's White Satin, per my favorite faux twin sister's instructions.  (Also, she is hosting the world's nerdiest yet awesomest giveaway on her blog.)  For the most part it is going well, with the exception of five crackly spots.   I've sanded this section down and re sprayed again, but now it's crackling again.
 Anyone?  Hello?  Is this thing on?
Once I get this figured out, I can't wait to show you a project I decided to do on a whim one morning.  Like any other project, it's led to another project, and then another.  Pretty soon, I'll be tearing down the Chalet and starting all over. Somewhere Mr. Man just read that and fell over dead.  Oh, who am I kidding he doesn't read my blog. 
Okay, seriously, I need spray paint help! Who has the answer for me?

Shoot, I don't know. It keeps crackling in the same spot even after you sand? Is there something sticky on the surface of the chair, maybe?

Usually it's not the spray paint but the surface you are putting it on, if you've sanded it though I don't know? Wish I could be more help but can't wait to see your finished project.

Re sand and apply a primer first then paint.

Have you used a primer? Primer makes everything better.
