Default Weathering Washes Off

I have tried weathering a hardbody using watered down acrylic paint, which is pretty much what I have seen everywhere. However, when the body gets wet (even weeks after painting, so it's definitely dry) the weathering paint washes off. I'm a little lost as to how to make it not disappear when my truck gets wet. Is this possibly because I am mixing too much water into the paint?

Hit the whole thing with matte clear spray. Do light mist coats so it stays dull.

Krylon Matte Finish has worked for me. When you're done weathering, spray it on top of everything. It gets a little hazy-looking if you put it on too thick so don't get carried away.
