YES!
some years ago I did myself a vacum bagged speed wing, I used standart cheap foam cutted on CNC machine, glued both sides, spar, etc...then I spray some paint on it, let it cure and then vacum bag, I also put some sild draw using Ferrari logo
The fiber cloth got good attach on foam even after the paint and the finishing looks very good for a home made toy

Cheers,
André
