My guess is the reason you have no responses is because of the materials you used.

Any but the most delicate approach would lead to a burn through.

It's hard to get enough thickness with a spray can to be able to cut and buff.
The paint is really thin.
If you put enough coats on you could do it but it would take a lot of coats.
Once dry I would probably start with no coarser grit than 2000
