I had queried the folks over at General Finishes a few months back about using a water based finish over oil. This was my question…

“I am considering using Endurovar for a top coat.
I will be spraying with a HVLP turbine sprayer. Can this product be sprayed
1) Danish Oil
2) Latex Paint
3) Milk Paint
4) Oil Based Paint
5) Gel Stain

This is what they said…

“Do not use over Long oils like Danish and Linseed oil. You can use over stains oil or water once they are dry a good 24-48 hours. Yes you can use over our Milk Paint but Enduro Var does have a decided amber tint so if it is a lighter color take that into consideration and our High Performance or Enduro Poly. Latex paint takes a really long time to dry out, sometimes even a week so if you use latex paint you will have to wait to top coat. You can top coat our Milk Paint the next day. The Enduro Var can be brushed, or sprayed. If spraying use a .051 or 1.3mm needle.”

Hope this helps.
