    Do you need to apply a primer to exterior acrylic before painting? I'm using black opaque acrylic and top painting it black.

    Yes for exterior, long lasting. You have to scuff it with sandpaper first, then primer, then paint. Spray gun is best to use.

    Black acrylic is going to expand quite a bit if it is in the sun. Make sure you plan for that.
