It'll work for a while, but unfortunately the design on both generations of LH cars for the wiper arms sucks in this regard. The hinge isn't a removable joint, and any painting you do there will eventually chip away from that spot.
Hitting it with some paint like you did is our best option short of new parts or a custom rebuild (drill out hinge, use new fasteners) though, so I don't mean to crap your project. It looks so much better. Mine is going to need something done soon.
