Can I paint over Minwax polycrylic
 
Can I paint over minwax polycrylic with spray paint? Do I need a primer or can I just go over it with spray enamel?

I would almost recommend not doing it. It might be just fine seing as how spray oil enamel will stick to just about anything, but you are making a transition from a latex/water based fiish to an oil base.

Clean, dry and dull.

i would sand a little, prime with S-W PrepRite Bonding Primer and stick with acrylic. after all, they are phasing out alkyd paints. in many states you can only get alkyds for corrosion resistance.

Do they make acrylic or latex spray paint? All the ones I see at Lowes or Home Depot are oil based spray paints.

they do make acrylic spray paints. spray paint is exempt from most VOC regulations.

Polycrilic is a waterbourne product, you never want to use an oil product over a waterbourne, it causes a lot of problems, but it is ok to use a waterbourne pruct over oil. You should sand the surface first(lightly), clean the surface, prime the surface with a waterbourne product(100% acrylic), then apply your top coat using a waterbourne product, some waterbourne products are not 100% acrylic.
