Hey guys,

I'm kinda stuck. Ik painted my body and neck white with acryl car paint (motip) and tried to finish it with polyurethane. But PU from a can solves the acryl (because of the white spirits) and PU with a brush gives me runners that I cant sand away without hitting the paint, plus a 2nd layer of this stuff is very ugly/not transparant.

Does anybody know a good way to finish acryllic paint?
Please don't tell me I should use a different paint because I already put so much work in the neck :)

As far as I know - and I am no expert - you should use only acrylic on acrylic... Anything else will be too strong.

I have no experience with the product that you have used so I am making this recommendation based on what I know about these products. I think it might work but you need to do a test.

Try using the Seal and Finish as a Barrier Coat and then use what ever you want on top.  I would use water white lacquer.
