Yes. Of course the result will be a flat coat, which is not suitable for decals. I prefer gloss acrylic for that reason. Then flat or gloss clear, then wash.

Yes. Just give the enamel base coat enough time to dry and cure. I usually wait at least overnite.

You bet.  But, like Stik says, give the enamel base plenty of time to dry.
