How Do You Spray Paint Styrofoam?

Spray paint styrofoam by spraying the paint over a primer such as Mod Podge or Plaster of Paris. Applying a primer to the styrofoam prevents the chemicals in the spray paint from eating the foam.

  1. Apply a coat of primer

    Paint or apply a thin coat of priming material to the styrofoam. Cover all surfaces that will come into contact with spray paint.

  2. Apply a second coat of primer

    Apply a second coat of primer to help even-out the surface of the styrofoam. Allow the primer to dry completely.

  3. Spray paint the styrofoam

    Spray paint the primed styrofoam and allow it to dry.
