    I would suspect that they are enamel. I don't put much faint in anything that is paint and primer all in one.
    Give it a test, let us know what you think.

    Certainly do some tests, to include final finish, but the colors looks pretty nice! Let us know what you find out.

    You ned to read and understand the Material Safety Data Sheet to get a basic idea of what each product is - oil based enamels, acrylics, lacquer, polyurethanes etc. Not all ingredients are hazardous, and only hazardous ingredients need to be listed - but they can be listed using proprietary names, different chemical names etc - as long as emergency personnel can identify the CAS number the sheets are compliant.

    Usually, though, you can figure out what something is *if* you understand basics of coatings formulation.

    As far as "Martha Stewart Paints" They will be made by a large private labeler like Behr, Sherwin Williams or PPG. And it's just a "sub brand" - not a type of coating.

    Some are acrylics, some are enamels, glitter paints, texture coatings and so on. so you have to research each specific one.

    As far as "can "x" go over "Y" there is no absolute answer. There are *SO* many tricked-out formulas for even things like "acrylic paint" that it depends on EACH specific product, how they are to be applied, how thick, on what, for what use, under what conditions and so on.

    In other words, you HAVE to test everything as identically as possible on the same kind of surface. You can easily get a dozen recommendations that are all different - and all of them will work in SOME cases.

    That's why doing your own testing is the only way to get a solid answer.

    They have some really nice colors-

    Michaels often has 50-60 percent off coupons for those interested.

    In fact, I was seriously considering the color called Poodle Skirt which looks tremendously like Shell Pink but opted for Reranch.
    I couldn't find the MDS sheet and didn't want compatibility issues to creep up on me.

    There's no reason you can't get a good looking guitar finish with any spray paint that comes with a decent spray tip. Sticking with compatible materials throughout the process, the painter is usually the limiting factor, not the materials. You just need to practice and do trials ahead of time.

    I am curious: What are the "interesting" colors to you? I don't see any that call to me.

    Most likely. Try it on a test piece first though.
