Using Oil-Based Paint Over Water-Based Primer on Exterior Woodwork?

Postby Zacccc » Thu May 19, 2016 11:55 pm

I renewed some exterior woodwork, which I am going to paint with oil-based paint. I first primed the wood with a B&Q primer which was erroneously described as "solvent based" on their website. When I came to clean the paint brush I realized the primer was water based. Can I use oil-based paint over this primer as this is the same paint that I've used on the surrounding woodwork which didn't need renewing? Thanks for any advice on this.
