What I decided to do after reading a few threads was to sand the foam well with 400 grit, use denatured alcohol to remove the dust and any remaining release agent, and use minwax water based polycrylic as a base coat for spray. the recommended number of coats seems to be at least 3 so I'll do like 5 with wet sanding in between as the polycrylic weight is next to nothing when it dries. with the polycrylic acting as somewhat of a shell, the spray paint should never even touch the foam. people seem to have had good results with this method but time will tell. it will take me another day or two to get everything with a good 5 coats.
