Hi
Has anyone here had experience with using water based paint on  EPO foam? Does it adhere well?
I am considering getting an unpainted EPO model . I was thinking of using my existing Krylon water based spray paints that i used on my regular foam planes, however someone mentioned that EPO has a oilier texture and regular solvent based spray paints work best on it. What's your experience?

You need to check out wowplanes.com he is selling some stuff called liquid sheeting, You then can paint with about any thing. Just a thought.

I have used it on epo with no problem that stuff from wow is great but messy great for your pride and joy but a little over the top if you just want to add a splash of colour to a foamy
   I'm as happy as a very happy sandboy.

Acrylic Tamiya model paints dont eat foam as far as I can tell .
I use it on my foam cessna , but to be sure test on a  scrap first.
