Krylon Short Cuts work very well on EPP.

I've been painting doculam and have finally bought a airbrush which I'm enjoying, I paint the inside of the covering so there's no final coat, my newest is a ghost flame job on my stinger 120, the airbrush is the way to go, paint is cheap and goes a long way, stencils are easy to make and use

Paint Recommendation?

I have decided on coffee filters and 60/40 Titebond II - water with a Polycrylic covering to go over balsa and FFF. It provides a reasonably hard shell and sands smooth.

I did some trial and error with ideas in Hoppy's newspaper glue covering thread:

I'm looking for a recommendation for painting over this. I'm not equipped with a spray gun / compressor, so looking more for a rattle can solution. I believe the covering can take paints that would eat foam. I don't think brushing on something would look good. I figure several light coats would work the best.

Color scheme will be primarily white and silver with some navy and gold trim.

Clear coat is something I'll consider but not an absolute requirement.

a harbor freight airbrush is like 10 dollars, and easy to use, the paints are a dollar and the go a long way, not to mention all the colors you could want. If you have to go spray can, I would prime it sand the primer mostly off, and then buy one brand of paint for the colors, and hope for the best, krylon would be the easiest to use, my problems never occurred with the base coat, it was when I did the trim color, it never came out right, the airbrush solved all of my problems, well enough to try a flame job.
