I wouldn't..........that said what color are you using? White primers are known for being opaque.....I use grey primer and if I am shooting a light color, I use HOK BC26 white over the primer,The white HOK base is close to Tamiya white primer.....The trouble you might find is the two paints craze,crack, or wrinkle....Do a spoon test :lol:

i was looking for a white primer to use under the duplicolor perfect match rattle cans. twice before when i tried to use grey primers, the grey kinda bled through the color i sparayed over it. both times the top color was a red shade. the grey underneath also seems to make the top coat darker.

Duplicolor white primer IS available. I get it at Pep Boys. Call around your local auto parts stores. Also have sprayed light colors over Duplicolor grey with no issues.

Jantrix is right. I use Duplicolor "White sandable primer". Really nice stuff. Works fine with Duplicolor, Tamiya, and Testors lacquer top coats.
