4" V2 painted but not quite perfect

So several entries below you saw below that the white paint applied perfectly, then I masked (and re-masked 3x), then painted the black. Again dust was my enemy outside and the black ended up severely pock-marked. I patched the diffuse color with a black paint pen and, while not perfect, it looks pretty good from this distance:
Next I plan to set up a paint room inside my house (with robust ventilation of course) and I'll apply a clear coat to remedy the specular gloss. It'll probably still be dimpled but the clear coat should dampen the craters and obscure the bronzing of the paint pen patches. I vow to get this right some day!
