Repainting a mask

I bought this mask a while ago, and I'm debating giving it a repaint, mainly because the paint is a bit dark for the colour scheme I eventually want, and the spots on the top are showing signs of wear, probably where the bio I made has been test fitted a few times. I know this has come up before, but there seem to be some different answers. I think the mask has been sealed, there's a slight sheen to it in some parts, I don't know how glossy it should be. I don't want to risk ruining it, should I try removing the paint, or would a coat of Pros Aide over the whole mask before repainting do the trick?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks guys

Thanks for the suggestion mate, When I went to order some prosaide I found Mouldlife are selling a product called Aquafix, it's a prosthetic adhesive the same as prosaide but a bit cheaper to buy, so I thought I would give it a go. I tried it on the neck ring and at the back of the head, once the paint had dried I flexed the neck ring a few times and it seems to hold the paint nicely, now I just need to practice airbrushing before I feel brave enough to tackle repainting the mask.
