Best Answer

You possibly could but you certainly should'nt. Let the Primer dry thoroughly. Answer: Sandblasted steel is usually painted this way, refered to as the "wet on wet" method. The topcoat is applied as soon as the primer is touch dry , but still soft. The primer and topcoat must be compatible, having the same base resin. This only applies to spraying. For brushing or rolling, the primer must be dry.
