Default Painting Depron

Hello group, newbie to model building here. I have built me first plane out of depron foam. I was told that before I paint it that I needed to wipe it down with alcohol before painting as this will remove all of the oil and such from the form. I have done that and now that I am painting it, I have purchased tempera paint and when I attempt to paint it, all of the paint will streak and disappear like oil and water. What am I doing wrong. I have also purchased spray paint frpm the local craft store and this is not working either. Thank you for any suggestions.

You don't need to prime it. Tempra paint doesn't work very well. I had the best luck with Krylon Shot Cuts or Tamiya paint. Multiple light coats are you friend.
