Spraying Styrofoam

Posted On: 14th of March, 2017
Posted In: DIY Projects, Chucks Know-Hows

Did you know you can use some spray paints directly onto Styrofoam?

Many spray paints will eat into Styrofoam soon after painting. This is due to the kind of solvents in the paint.

Sugar Artists’ Acrylic and uses an alcohol based solvent made from sugar cane. It does not attack the foam.

MTN Water Based also contains alcohol as a drying agent, and does not contain solvents that eat foam.

After testing we can recommend that you can safely use MTN Water Based and Sugar Artists’ Acrylic paints directly onto foam with no primer.

Most of the other paints we carry, including our main ranges Ironlak, MTN Hardcore and MTN 94 will all attack the foam, unless an appropriate primer is used. MTN 94 Foam Primer is available which is used as a undercoat to protect the foam, in which case any paint can then be used on top of the primer.

Tried and Tested

We have put a range of masking tapes to the test, and have selected a couple of favourites to add to our range.

General Purpose: A low priced tape suitable for general masking needs. Use it to mask off areas when painting. If using outdoors it should be removed from surfaces the same or next day, it does not perform well when left in the sun for an extended time. Use for line work on large scale artworks, it will leave a decently clean line, but if you're looking for something more precise you should consider our premium tape.

Premium: This premium tape is ideal for detail work, and leaves a very clean line without paint bleeding under the edge. It can be used to mask areas outdoors - it suggests for up to 7 days, but we left it in the rain and hot sun for 3 weeks and it peeled of beautifully.
