I Use Minwax Polycrylic water based, mixed 50% with Rubbing Alcohol, and sprayed on with air brush.

Good luck

If you need a filling primer, mix talcum powder in the un-thinned Minwax Polycrylic, but you won't be able to spray it with an air brush. I usually mix a lot of talc and it is kind of a paste like consistency. Brush or trowel it on. The talc gives it a pleasant small when you are sanding it too.

I've had luck with krylon H2o spray latex. They have a white primer in the h2o series. It says on the can that it paints craft foam. In a few cases of me being impatient and applying way too heavy a coat it has eaten the foam. I like it. I don't know if you'd consider it to be light weight though.
