Agree. You need professional help. Depending on what you used to paint the hood, you may be able to wash it off again with a mild solvent and start over. Most spray bomb paints, if that's what you used, are very low quality and can be removed easily, but BE CAREFUL. Test the solvent you use on the underside of the trunk lid to make sure it won't attack the factory paint and make the situation worse.
