I've used Createx over urethanes without any issues....and vice versa......not sure about lacquers though.....I'm guessing you are dealing with urethanes and not lacquers anyway.....alot of folks seem to call urethanes, lacquers, when in fact they are not the same thing.

this is lacquer paints its just getting harder to find different or odd colors any more without paying big bucks looking for different ways add colors

Fair enough.....I know that lacquers are still around, but as you say, hard to find and expensive.....are you also clearcoating with the lacquer?

My guess is that your going to be fine shooting a warter based paint over laquer..Nathan

Might have an adhesion problem which may require you to scuff the lacquer basecoat. I would conduct a small scale experiment to see if there would be any problems and to remove all doubt. Could be as simple as a few small blocks of wood painted in the manner anticipated for finishing the lure. Then subjecting the blocks to different conditions to determine compatability and if there is proper adhesion.
