Spray paint / Brush over


It's DIY, we're doing it ourselves...

Pinewood Derby cars- can I spraypaint with a regular OTC Enamel spray paint, (one car is gloss, one car is flat) then my son can hand paint his designs over the enamel with an Acrylic artist paint without having the enamel be affected and peel/strip/get messy?

I would prime the car first........then apply any over-the-counter paint you like. I think just spray painting the wood could give you potential peeling/messy problems when you detail the car.

I did end up priming, so I've got primer, then Enamel on it now. Should be ok with a brush-on acrylic art paint then?
