So I got a hold of some Black Glossy Krylon Spraypaint and painted the casing. I would of preferred flat, but glossy was the only kind available at the store I went to. It looks like it came out alright, but I'll have to touch up some edges another time.

Is there anyway to possible tone-down how glossy this paint is currently? I was possibly thinking maybe go over it with a light layer of flat spray paint (however, I don't have plastic-bonding flat spray paint, but since I'm spraying it on top of paint already, would it matter?). Perhaps there is some sort of liquid I could rub on the paint itself to make it appear less glossy? Maybe even lightly-sanding it might help?

Also I can't take pictures currently, but once I get my new tablet, I'll be sure to take some pictures.
