I"ve to buy an acrylic spray indigenous Halfords and I"m wanting to ensure that all the "under belly" the the wings is a uniform colour.

You are watching: Can you paint acrylic over enamel

The pylons to be painted utilizing an enamel paint around four mainly ago.

Checking on here and some various other forums, the general consensus is as long as the basic enamel paint is dry and not leaking spirit, the acrylic over the top should be fine.

I"m assuming there"s evidence in these points, however what room your views? What is "dry", and also how long after would the paint be leeching spirit?

Clearly I"m walking to test first, yet I"d like to have actually an idea before I do!

Within seconds of the repaint going on.

If girlfriend spray in light mist coats and build up the colour in thin layers it must be fine.

Blast a hefty coat on and the enamel will certainly dissolve and wrinkle

Its not the acrylic per se; that is the carrier. I brush Humbrol/Revell/Vallejo acrylics end enamels all the time without problems. Even spraying them on with an airbrush is fine.

A rattle have the right to uses a much more volatile carrier, so dubbed ""hot"".

If girlfriend mist the coats ~ above it permits the volatile carrier to evaporate quickly, or "flash off". A pair of misted top top coats becomes a barrier against its very own evil ideas.

A heavy coat place a the majority of the transport on and traps lot of it against the enamel paint permitting it react.

So had actually a pat this morning (with the paint!) and also it seems the advice was correct!

As lengthy as the enamel has had time to dry thoroughly (in my instance a couple of weeks), it appears that a irradiate spraying as you would commonly use come layer, has no okay effect.

Spotted some slight drop form circles that have actually popped up when I got brought away, however on the entirety if I had actually the mainly to spare after utilizing enamel repaint I"d confidently to speak you shouldn"t suffer any ill paintwork!!

I spray acrylics end enamels and also vice versa every the time, numerous times within hours with no problems. I think the factor is but they all use the very same Mr.Color thinner (Tamiya/humbrol/Revell/Xtracolor/Xtracrylix paints used). Despite I have actually in the past also sprayed Tamiya paints thinned v their thinner over enamels thinned with some kind of enamel/laquer thinner within a couple of hours and visa versa. Probably I just have actually not been little bit yet?
