Do not confuse Engine paint with Brake paint. Engine Paint cannot handle the high temperature of a braking system. (Which is why I suspect your paint cracked.
I, like Willren, have used the Caliper paint from Autozone. It'* holding up great on the bonne, and still looks good on my Dads truck (3.5 years later)
2 Cans paint, plus one can brake cleaner = $17.
Check out my Sticky at the top of Detailing and Appearance for my take on painting calipers.
