Painting over krylon fusion

Has anybody had luck painting over krylon fusion.
Painted my end caps with the fusion, planned on doing a sponged paint texture on top, but krylon says that the only thing you can paint over the fusion with is more fusion. Who'd have thought, guess I should have asked before.
Hoping someone's had good success or I'm going to sand it off and start over with plastic primer. Bummer that could set me back a week plus.

Interesting. I have heard of people using white Krylon Fusion flat as a primer, and then using another color and type of paint on top, with success.

Maybe just give it a try?

In other news - I just painted Krylon Fusion on bare aluminum and was surprised at how well it stuck to that.
