i have to try this out! definitely! ... now where's some styrofoam!

just one question: what primer do you use and how does the styrofoam react to painting? (well ok - that were two questions! :blush: )

Thanks Laura!

You should definitely give it a try, its an easy and fast way to make brick works.

I dont prime the Styrofoam at all just paint Vallejo directly onto the surface. Be careful because some glues ,paints and thinners attack the Styrofoam and melt it, always test a new medium on some scrap Styro first.

Good luck

The starting point..
