While acrylic paints are considered to be “waterproof”, that only means that it is waterproof across a wide range of temperatures (above about 45,000° F/5,400° C) – water does not bond under those conditions.

Therefore, if you are uncertain about the use of a can of acrylic paints with food, you should not spray it.
