Can you paint metal with enamel?
Besides, does enamel paint need primer on metal?
Enamel paint is a general term applied to paints that dry to a hard, durable finish. Enamel paints are also a good pick for any material that needs a slick, protective finish. Bathroom fixtures and metal appliances are often finished with enamel paints. Traditionally, enamel paints are oil-based.
Secondly, can you paint oil over enamel? As most of you know, oil and water don't mix - and the same applies to acrylic (water-based) paint and oil-based enamel paint. If you do, you will see that the paint starts to split or separate on top of the oil-based enamel and won't adhere properly.
what kind of paint do you use for metal?
You will be using acrylic paint (which works best on metal), so you want to choose an oil-based primer that is compatible with acrylic paint. Look for primer products that are made specifically for metal, as well, since these will best adhere to the surface.
