Painting went wrong?

Okay i bought some fan made armour and set to work as my first attempt. Pictured is the paint job that it came in.
I started painting it and started with the metal undercoat. That looked pretty good so obviously I moved on to the yellow. No problems either.
Finally, the green. And not to put too fine a point on it, it looks like someone who can't paint very well has painted on a bad day. It doesn't look like armour at all.
I'm gonna have to sand and start again.
What am I not doing. I read about acrylic wash. What is that? and powder spraying black. What does that mean. Any tips gratefully received.

You won't have to sand the paint off, try using 'Acetone' (nail polish remover), this will dissolve the paint for you. It's a bit smelly, but will save you loads of time. Don't try this if the armour is made form plastic though;)
