what to use to mask epo using liquitex paint
trying to to diff colors top and bottom... have rubbed epo with denatured alcohol..sprayed first color... masked it with painters tape that I had put on the carpet first to lessen some of its tackyness... but paint still came off when I peeled it... any suggestions??? should I spray a clearcoat over the first colored side then add the tape ????? maybe that would work.. what is a good brand of clearcoat that works with liquitex btw??

The problem with EPO is getting paint to adhere to it- the surface needs to be scuffed so the paint can key to it, or you need some kind of adhesion promoter on the EPO.
I'm experimenting with a light coat of (foam safe) 3M Super 77 as an adhesion promoter and, while the verdict is still out, initial results look promising. I started a thread in the Foamies kits section called "Priming EPO- Eureka moment?" which documents some of the experimenting.
