Foam Safe Paint


The TM is in need of a re-furb. I thought I'd cover some rash with a new paint job. What seems to work the best on the GWS foam?

Most of my foamies are made of foamboard, so I'll assume the GWS planes are using similar foam. Water based acrylic paint from your LHS is fine. Can be brushed or sprayed (w/o a solvant). Just be careful that you're not putting it on too thick, it adds weight quickly.

Krylon Short Cuts also work, but the propelland melts the foam, so you need to put it on lightly, and not too close, to let the solvant evaporate quickly.

Is there anything water based that I can spray out of a can?

Testors makes a good spray paint that you can paint on foam.
Check it out at your LHS or one of our fine online hobby shops.
