Laquer over paint

Going to be making some small wood items and some will be spray painted. Will a couple coats of spray laquer work well over the paint?

Depends entirely on the first layer of paint and how long it has cured.

You forgot to ask Paul if he was actually _after_ krinkle paint.

It happens far too often. Different solvents interreact, or paint isn't completely cured before application of a topcoat, etc. It's best to avoid that.

Use a high-quality exterior enamel instead, Paul. No extra protection or gloss needed. Someone recently mentioned Benjamin Moore Impervex and got a rise out of me. My mind centered on the middle of the word. :) It comes in acrylic (waterborne) and alkyd (solvent) bases.

Spray lacquer over Rustoleum oil-based will give him exactly what he wants.

It will if the paint is lacquer-based, like Krylon or other fast dry spray paint (look for acetone, ketone, MEK, or toluene in the solvents listing). Do a test first. If a lacquer topcoat is incompatible with the base paint, it'll tell you in no uncertain terms.
