Turpentine spray-paint + water-based lacquer over it; Bad idea?

Postby William1965 » Sun Jun 27, 2021 10:26 am

Yesterday I sprayed a cabinet with spray paint -turpentine based- black.
And I just painted that cabinet with interior paint.

I was convinced that I had bought a turpentine-based lacquer. But now I read those small characters on the tin; It appears to be 'water-based'...

Question: A turpentine-based spray paint, over which a water-based lacquer was applied; How bad is this?
Because I was told that the paint or varnish would not adhere well.

Thanks in advance for the answers.
