Epson p400 smearing ink

Hi everyone,

Just got a Epson p400 and ordered myself Epson metallic luster paper. I printed this shot of a lavender onto Epson metallic luster after printing it on a smaller 8x10 sheet of epson premium luster which turned out fine. The printer seems to have smeared everything while laying down the ink. I had it set dpi 270, a slow print speed and selected the metallic from the paper selection. I top feed it as it was not "Fine art paper".

I am hoping someone has experience on how to fix this issue or recommendations on metallic paper that will no smear when I print on the p400.

Below is a comparison of the two prints hope you can see the difference.
