Acrylic paint
Posted by ditdah54 on Monday, May 20, 2019 6:51 PM

I am speaking of brush paint. I have never used it. I accidentally bought some today. Should I take it back and trade for enamel or laquer?

Use it!  It dries fairly quickly.  Not as long as enamel, but a little longer than lacquer.

My personal experience with some acrylic paint is that it rubs off easy, so you may want to clear coat as soon as possible to reduce that possibility.
