Dupli-Color is an acrylic enamel. I assume that you are using spray cans.
Therefore, one suggestion is to heat the can slightly with a pan of warm water prior to spraying. This along with a good 5 minutes of shaking will activate the glossy agents in the paint you are using.

Drying can effect the gloss as well especially if the item painted is allowed to dry in a cool humid location. However once dry, the paint can be polished back to a glossy sheen. Even clear.
