Default A fatal mistake?

HELP! I laid down a base coat of enamel on my panzer III, and let it dry for a week. Then I sprayed tamiya acrylics over that. Will I be able to apply an enamel oil wash now??????????



Thanks in advance!

That's no problem, I used a Humbrol black/brown wash on top of Tamiya acrylics and it was fine.

Next day, but you can get away with much less if the acrylic is sprayed on, as it's a thinner coat.

It's better to use a different based paint for weathering anyway - you can wipe or flood away mistakes. (acrylic over enamel. or enamel over acrylic are both good for weathering)
