Latex over enamel?


Active member
Hi guys,

I just finished painting my plane with a spray can of Rust Oleum 2x paint and primer acrylic enamel spray paint. Now I planned to use some paint from a can and an airbrush to add some green over the brown to make a WWII camo finish.

However, at the last moment, I noticed the Rust Oleum green paint I bought in the can is actually latex. I know my airbrush can handle that, but how will latex over enamel work? I really never painted much, so I'm totally in the dark on this! Also, I plan to put some decals over the paint.

I gave up and tried to do it with spray cans. It doesn't look all that good, but it's not all that bad either. I clearly picked the wrong colors though.
