Paint question... Spray paint (enamel?) over acrylic latex???
« on: February 26, 2012, 11:11:56 AM »
I've got some boxes I want to use for swarm traps that have been painted with (white) exterior acrylic latex.  I'm not sure of the type (it's sitting at work right now) of spray paint I picked up to camouflage the boxes but it's the less than $4 kind from Lowes.  I figure it's an enamel of sorts.  Will this work over the latex?  I'm not looking for showcase quality....just something that won't peel for a couple of years.

American blood spilled to protect the freedom and peace of people all over the world.  320,000 USA casualties in WWI, 1,076,000 USA casualties in WWII, 128,000 USA casualties in the Korean War, 211,000 casualties in the Vietnam "conflict", 57,000 USA casualties in "War on Terror".  Benghazi, Libya, 13 USA casualties. These figures don't include 70,000 MIA.  But, the leaders of one political party of the United States of America continue to make the statement..."What difference does it make?".

"We can't expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism."..."The press is our chief ideological weapon." - Nikita Khrushchev

"Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they wont come to yours." - Yogi Berra

Enamel paint can be used over almost anything except lacquer.
Only God can make these two things.....Blood and Honey!
