Safest is water based paint and brush or airbrush, aerosol will eat most foam some easier then others. When you do use it you have to almost mist it from a few feet away and thin coats. It doesn't matter if they are water based either, it's the aerosol that eats the foam.

Minwax first. Then spray away but still not too close.

The one thing to remember if you are trying to keep it as light as possible every coat of paint is more weight.

I use 'Plastikote' spray paint. It's supposed to be foam-friendly. SOME Colours will bite the foam if you put on too much at once, but most I've had are fine with it.

Actually oil based. Water based lifts the paper.
