Best Answer

Great on wood, also metal and even masonry or concrete. Fine inside or outside the home as both first coat and repaint. Most brands are brush-on. Some anti-rust, so the choice is yours. Nice final glossy look.

Usually, one coat is sufficient if you are repainting a surface with an existing coat of paint (of same or lighter color)

Paint dry to the touch in about two hours. Allow more if re-coating is necessary.

Hope this helps!

How do you test for acrylic or enamel paint?

To test for acrylic paint, apply about a teaspoon of Methyl Hydrate to a clean (white) rag, and then rub the paint with the wet part of the rag. If the paint transfers to the rag, it is acrylic paint. To test for enamel paint, apply about a teaspoon of Turpentine to a clean (white) rag, and then rub the paint with the wet part. If the paint transfers to the rag, it is an enamel paint. PS: Never paint over an enamel paint with an acrylic paint without using a good quality primer. The acrylic paint will flake or peal off the enamel paint very easily.
