Building up my 1st foamie and I've spent the better part of the day working up a paint scheme and figuring out how I'm going to apply the paint and am having good luck with thinning acrylic paint 50/50 with water and using an airbrush.
The problem seems to be getting the paint to really stick to the Depron. I let my 1st test piece dry for about 2 hours before masking off the next color (3M Blue tape) and shooting it. The tape peeled up a good portion of the paint it was covering. Tried some of the low-tack white tape. Same deal.
How do you get this stuff to stick to the Depron??
I read on RC Universe to 1st wipe the Depron down with alcohol so my current test piece was wiped down with 70% isopropynol then allowed to dry for 30 minutes before applying the acrylic. I'm going to let this coat dry overnight and try the 2nd color in the morning...
I've also read thinning the acrylic with alcohol works too..
