Can you paint over epoxy resin?

No type of paint will bond to unprepared epoxy paint. Because epoxy painted surfaces don't allow adhesion, they must be abraded before they will accept new paint. Sanding the old epoxy finish with a 120- to 220-grit sandpaper will promote adhesion. Once the epoxy has been abraded, any type of paint will bond to it.

Can I paint on top of epoxy resin?

Re: painting on top of epoxy resin Main rule is to paint more flexible layer on top of hard layer to prevent cracks. Epoxy resin is good and hard enough but has a glossy surface. So you need to make an adhesive thin layer among glossy surface and oil paint film.
