Subject:
oil over acrylic paint?

Robert Savit
>Lately I've been playing around with highlights of acrylic paint on some of my work. Generally my finish of choice is polymerized tung oil, or a tung old/varnish mix (eg. a la Russ). However, I've been having a hard time getting a satisfactory finish over the acrylic paint. It seems to take many coats for any build, and then it's difficult to get it to look even and smooth, even after buffing. This is most noticable over black acrylic paint. Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Bob Savit
