I was trying to paint my bare chromoly steel bicycle frame and fork. I sanded the frame and fork with 120 grit sandpaper to give it a slightly rough surface for the paint to adhere to. I used a quick-drying acrylic rattle can spray paint to apply primer to it.
I waited for more than 24 hours to apply the top coat (same brand and paint type). I stuck masking tape to check if the primer would come off, it didn't. I applied a little too much of the top coat so there were runs on some parts of the frame. I tried wiping the runs with a rag thinking that only the top coat would be wiped off. Unfortunately, when I wiped it off, the primer went with the top coat.
Is that supposed to happen when I wipe off a fresh top coat? I'm not sure if the metal was still too smooth for painting but it is scuffed. Also, for runs, if I can't wipe it off, do I just wait for it to dry and sand to smooth out the surface and then reapply another layer of top coat?
It doesn't say how long the paint dries
