What is a good brand of foam safe spray paint? Tried to find Tamiya brand, but one local hobby shop that carried it closed a couple years ago, any ideas?

Just came across this thread - looks interesting. I laminated my foamboard plane, then sprayed paint directly onto it. It may well peel at spots, but the paint adheres well to the laminate and no problems with solvent melt. Yellow and green for a mottled effect.

Thanks Rich. Can you find out what type of foam it is and then search the thread?
