painting over a metallic technique finish

Several years ago I painted my bathroom walls with a translucent metallic technique finish. Now I want to repaint my bathroom and want to know if I need any special preparation before I repaint. Do I need to sand the wall before I repaint?  I love painting and change colors in my rooms periodically but never painted over a  metallic surface.

Thank you for your response,

Because of the nature of the metallic paint and it's properties - I would definitely sand the surface.  

 

It's always a good idea to prime over any kind of specialty finish just to be on the safe side.

 

I am a big fan of oil based primers in a situation like this.  Just remember to ventilate when applying.
