Hello,
I am making some wooden pot holders for someone. I plan on spray painting them and I was wondering if I could use a water based clear acrylic over the spray paint to seal it? Any help is appreciated....

Thanks,
Joe

So the water based clear acrylic wouldn't seal the paint? Or is the acrylic going react to the hot pan? I've seen wooden pot holders, so do I need to just stick to the unpainted,unfinished wood?

Most finishes will not stand up to temperatures much over 160-180 degrees. Makes no difference whether it's paint or clear.

Most wooden potholders are oiled with mineral oil or left unfinished. Test it out on some scrap.
