I believe the malimine is a latex, so I wouldn't recommend it, but if you do, coat it with oil primer first.
I just assumed since most people go with the Latex version and infact it's hard to find specs on the older oil based versions. If you are sure it was oil based, then you can go right over it again with oil. If it's glossy then just scuff up the surface with some 220 grit sandpaper first.
