Can you use acrylic epoxy spray paint on an canvas acrylic painting?

the acrylic epoxy spray paint is a clear lacquer for wood, glass, iron, etc. . I was wondering if you can use it as a varnish for an acrylic painting on a canvas.

    Idk but I think I'm gonna use acrylics on canvas. If I can't I'd like to know why. 

    You can use them on wood and canvas is very good for oil normally as oil is absorbed through paper. Acrylic is a plastic based material so I have no idea if you can just is on a board instead or even cheap paper.

    I don't think it is a good idea, from what I know about epoxy. I'm sure there is a painting varnish specific product you could find instead of taking that risk. Good luck with your painting!
