Question

Help would be appreciated!


OK, so I have a bit of an odd situation. I've recently began paining my own Xbox 360 controllers (see image below). Well I have the general idea of painting them down and this part came out very well, but didn't get the proper time to dry. Here's the problem:

I've already painted the controller. Several layers of gold and 2-3 layers of clear coat. A few spots on the controller have began fading already due to the lack of proper time to dry. I would like to do a touch-up on it and maybe just do a whole new layer of gold.

Since I have already clear coated the controller shell, is it safe to just add another layer on top of the clear coat? I have an adhesion promoter which worked very well... should I use that on the clear coat, then spray the gold?

If anyone can give advice, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

Well thank you! Like I said, it had come out great. But a friend of mine offered $40 for it the day after I painted it and I didn't let it sit long enough, so when it was being handled, our palms faded away the paint job.

That's what I was afraid of lol. I don't want to sand it, but I guess I'll have to.
