Paint just under hot coat?

I’m laminating a board with carbon fiber, and want to paint the deck something other than black. Can I get away with painting on top of the lam, then just putting a slightly thick hot coat directly over the paint? I want this board to be light, so I don’t want to put 2 oz fiberglass over the paint.

Too many distractions. Kitty, g/f talking non stop, TV going…

Hot coat needs chemical bonding to lam, won’t happen with paint in center sandwich.

You can pigment the lam coat.

You can pigment the hotcoat, then sand it.

Now you pigment the finish coat, for the color you want.
