Nitrate dope will accept most everything over it, butyrate is more selective, thus butyrate is used as a top, or finish coat (usually over nitrate dope). But do a sample check, just to see how yours comes out.

Thanks. Looks to be a good thing that I didn't put it on. The dope was butyrate.

Thanks for the paint chart ghost!
