I recently bought a door knocker and sprayed it with Tremclad semi-gloss...I find it too shiny and I want to respray with a matte finish. Is this possible? I read somewhere that you can't go down a finish...

Thanks so much for the reply, DBD! You always come through! I went ahead and bought the matte Tremclad. Can I just spray over the semi-gloss? Or do I have to buy the rottenstone and rub it down like you suggested?
