Can you use Chalkboard paint over magnetic paint?

Generally speaking, yes.

As long as both paints are the same base (latex, acrylic, oil), if they are different bases, you can paint an oil base over a water base, but not the other way around.

It will help if you very lightly sand the magnetic paint before you add the chalkboard paint.
