Just another basic question can you spray waterbased paint (createx) over enamels and then enamel clear back over the waterbased or will it " fry up "
Never had anything to do with waterbased before

The easiest way to look at it is, does the paint I'll use have properties that will disolve what's underneath it (keep in mind whats underneath it must be dry). Water based paint as far as I'm aware can't disolve any none waterbased paint and is as such safe to use on whatever other paints will be beneath it.

In general waterbased paint will withstand any clearcoat applied onto it (again if it's completely dry), it can't hurt to make a small test piece though to make sure you are not faced with any nasty surprises.
 
Yes , I usually let the enamels cure out and give them a light scuff then art work then clear .
By Createx I hope you mean WICKED :D
mainly because standard createx is not color fast and can fade over time.
 
i was curious what Createx had to say so i emailed them....here is their response:
