CLEARCOATING OVER ACRYLICS
Posted by JARRNO88 on Tuesday, August 23, 2016 10:23 AM

 I am detailing a dashboard from a semi truck model kit using ACRYLIC paint.  I am doing the gauges and woodgrain etc. by hand then I am going to mask off the the instrument panel area with BMF and then airbrush the dash area etc. the interior upolstery color.  I first need to clearcoat the dash where I did all my acrylic work by hand to avoid the BMF pulling the ACRYLICS up.  Is it safe to use MM 2736 CLEAR TOP COAT enamel over the ACRYLICS or will will the enamel clearcoat ruin the ACRYLICS ?

I prime with gloss black enamel when using mm metalizer .the metalizer might attack the acrylic. I have used acrylic over enamel and lacquer ok but test 1st on a plastic spoon
