Painting Question… Is This Latex or Alkyd?

You can take some denatured alcohol or fingernail polish on a cloth and lightly rub it on an inconspicuous test area.

If the paint softens and is easily removed, then it is a latex paint. If the paint does not really seem to be affected by the test, it is typically an alkyd coating.
