    I am so sorry. Unfortunately, there are just way too many variables to be able to answer this question without be able to do actual tests on the painting. (IE was it varnished or unvarnished?, how much was the original paint thinned?, what type of spray paint?, etc) Conservation treatments are always case specific. You should really take it to a program-trained painting conservator.
