paint reaction

i want to do some spraying so before doing so i tested if there'd be a paint reaction between aerosol primer and cellulose paint by rubbing on some cellulose thinner and there was a reaction

how can i overcome this, i know something like barcoat is an option, or can i spray i light coat of paint and gradually get thicker with the coats?

any help will be appreciated,

thanks

Re: paint reaction

Aerosol paint doesnt allow anything over the top, even by using barcoat you need to strip the aerosol off or it will lift overtime!

I would prepare it and take your time, then get a good quality 2k paint

Hi Trist, dont panic..


the cellulose thinners WILL strip the primer as its only a 1k product.

try spraying your primer on a scrap bit of tin leave and spray your colour coat over the top. It should be fine, just dont rub it.
