" Anodized" Paint on Captain America Shield

Wanna use the duplicolor metalcast anodized colors on an aluminum cap shield so the spun metal look will show through but I'm worried about the paint coming off if I don't use a primer. Any clear primer suggestions that won't dull the finish of the aluminum?

You're good. Duplicolor sticks great to raw aluminum. Wipe the whole shield with acetone to remove grease first.
What if you didn’t want a glossy finish, but more of a hard anodized “Matte Finish” look? Could you put a matte clear coat on top? Or just use a different paint entirely?

Here's an example of the Metalcast red with gloss vs matte clear.
