you can paint acrylics over just about any base paint. I use lacquer based primer for my base coating

Piant mixing is not for everyone especialy a low budget hobby. Everytime you mix paint you are going to loose a portion , have to thin and Know how to meter the mix right everytime its made. I found a company that does my mixing locally and they allready have hundreds of color mixes and they are a airbrush paint maker and taxidermy paint supplier. So befor you mix > check out www.smithpaints.com
they are mail order out of Harrisburg,Pa. I use them over createx brand any day but not for primer base or top coats. I have other venders for that. The piant pictured on the B.B. above looks like the type that will crack . Look into glass jar or plastic jar paints at craft stores (acrylic type)

paint by numbers.thats just what i need.my painting is awful.do you think it will crack if i put it on very thin?

that paint shouldnt crack, but it will have to be topcoated and devcon is probably about the only topcoat thats going to not react with the paint and bubble it up.
