Default Ready Made RC Lunar Eclipse Foamie Painting

I am assembling this Mooney clone. Wanting to know if I can use Rustoleum spray paint? If not, suggestions? Thank you in advance.

I'd do some testing, first.

The solvents in Rustoleum may eat your foam

A safer bet for painting foamies would be water based paints.

I've had great luck with shooting Min-Wax over foam. 2 coats. Then you can use rattle can afterwards.
