Acrylic paint effect on signal strength

Has anyone tested wireless signal strength when acrylic paint is placed in front of an AP? We are putting up some Belden BWIE-100 wireless enclosures in our new events center and our architectural team needs to paint a few of them so they blend in with the walls. I'm pretty sure they are using acrylic paint. I know that acrylic products hinder wireless signal, but I'm not sure how much. Any guidance is appreciated.
