plasti-dip hood

I recently plasti-dipped my grill, part of my front bumper, and the raised part of my hood. I think the grill and bumper look good, the hood does not. What did I do wrong? Do I jus suck at spray painting? lol Any help would be appreciated

Just from the picture, either the coat wasn't even or it was still wet when you took it. Regardless, I don't think the hood would look good plastidipped. I've only done my grill and was very pleased with that alone.
