What are the effects of Lexan paint when applied over other types of paint? Also, will Lexan paint mix with other paint mediums?

Paint for Lexan (Pactra I assume) is a Lacquer. You can apply it over Tamiya primer or over Plastikote primer but not enamels. Shot dry... on enamels you can slowly build it up but for a nice glossy flooded finish, you will only be left with wrinkles and lifted base coat.

It is a lacquer pure and simple and should be treated as such.
