My aunt wants me to airbrush her motorcycle helmet, which I am confident in doing, but I was curious to see if you would know if I could use the createx paint (i'm trying not to use Urethane paints like House of Color, auto air, ect.) and I could spray a professional clear with hardener over my artwork to make in look 'factory painted' if you will.
I do not have much experience with waterborne paint yet (although my rep keeps trying to get me to take a class). I would venture a guess and say you could use a urethane clear over it. As long as the base has ample time to cure. Any reason you don't want to use a HOK or DuPont?
