Add a little talcum powder to take a little of the gloss away,

The best stuff I have found is found at your local radio controled model airplane store. It's put out by Top-Flite and is called LustreKote. Get the black #TOPR7509. It is high gloss, fuel proof Model Paint. I ran across this when I was flying R/C Models and it is great stuff.
