  1. I am not a Paint Chemist… try reading the label of the product and see what usage it has… I would stay with Acrylics…

  2. Yes, you can use oil-based metallic enamel paint on architectural foam. However, it is important to properly prepare the foam surface before painting to ensure adhesion and longevity of the finish. Plus if you use a spray paint, harsh solvents, you could damage the foam.

    First, you should clean the foam surface to remove any dust, dirt, or debris. Next, apply a primer specifically designed for foam surfaces to create a strong base for the paint to adhere to. Zinsser 123 should work well. Allow the primer to dry completely before applying the metallic enamel paint.

    When applying the paint, make sure to do so in thin, even coats to prevent drips and ensure a smooth, professional finish. Allow each coat to fully dry before applying the next one. After the paint has dried completely, consider applying a clear topcoat to protect the metallic finish and provide added durability.
