Foam Safe Spray Paint
Hey guys I have been experimenting with several types of ways to add color to my foamies. Using tape from Tape Brothers, Ultrmacoat wide variety of Kryolon and Rustoleum paints. Many of the aerosol paints can really do a number on your plane if you are too aggressive in spraying. I have done some sealing of the foam first then spray with aerosol: Minwax Oil base sealer, Modgepod from Hobby Lobby some water base sealers as well prior to actually spraying on aerosol paints. Problem.....they all add weight. I have just recently started experimenting with Ultracoat and with temperature control have been successful in not melting the foam. Tape Brothers (Experimental Airlines-Ed) is OK but very transparent. But you can get a wide variety of colors.
I just went on Walmart's web page and located some latex spray paint called Eco-Guard. Compatible with foam...as they say. I need to pick up a can and try it. They say it is foam safe. Must not contain all the nastys: toluene, xylene,propane, etc.
The cans are 12oz and sell for under $6US. Testers runs about the same price for only 3 oz.

Hobby Lobby sells paint called Krylon Short Cuts which comes in small spray cans. The store near me keeps it locked up in a case so i always have to wander all over the store until i can find someone who has a key to get to it. Interestingly enough, you can go across the street to Lowes and buy any kind of paint or other chemical right off the shelf. Anyway, I've used it on Depdron, DTF, and even plain old styrofoam with no problems and a light coat gives good coverage.
