Really just about any paint works on EPP. Acylic, laquer, enamel etc.
You can wipe EPP with acetone or MEK and it does not melt. EPP isn't affected by solvents like you are use to in other types of foam.
You can always just use a test piece, but anything goes with EPP.

Just one other thing, use as light coats as you can, the EPP doesn't soak the paint up put builds in the porousness of the foam.
Use just enough to give the color you want and you won't gain much weight.
Cool. Thanks. Because I was getting a headache from reading all these painting threads.
