  1. Alkyd paints can be sprayed over surfaces painted with acrylic paint, provided that proper surface preparation is done to ensure adhesion. Acrylic paint is a water-based paint that dries quickly and creates a flexible, durable finish. However, alkyd paints are oil-based and offer a hard, tough, glossy finish once dried.

    To successfully spray alkyd paint over acrylic paint, follow these steps:

    1. Clean the surface thoroughly to remove any dirt or contaminants that could interfere with adhesion.
    2. Prime the surface with a suitable primer that is compatible with both acrylic and alkyd paints. This will improve adhesion and create a smooth base for the alkyd paint.
    3. Apply the alkyd paint using a high-quality spray gun, following the manufacturer’s instructions for proper application and drying times.
