Did you bake the paint?
High temp paints often need tempered at lower temperatures in order to bake them into the material, much like a powdercoat.
I've used them a lot on engine parts over the years, and have learned a few tricks along the way. Like annealing steel in order to bleed it of the moisture from it before applying a coating. Most people don't realize that even raw steel still has moisture in it. I'm most worries about it adhering where the brand contacts the material. Never ran into that situation before.

And thanks, I sure hope it goes well too. I don't have solid gold at my disposal, like a lot of the kintsugi masters had 100+ years ago, but the powder will do just fine for a decorative piece. I think the gold will look nice alongside the deep brown as well.
