Painting polystyrene models
I'm trying to paint a plastic model car that is made of polystyrene, and have seen this done with a base - clear coat paint. my question is how do you stop the paint from wrinkling the plastic. I have talked to some paint suppliers but couldn't get an answer. If you have any ideas on what products to use please let me know.Tim Humphrey
en patisserie la plupart du temps j'utilise une couche dite protectrice avant d'aborder la peiture souvent ý l'aide d'un airbrush. if no use 2or3 coats of paint and let dry betwines acts. and never forget that polystyrene is dammage by some chimiccal paint I hope you understandbrahim_sifate

Use a coat of gesso [linked by editor to product info at Amazon]...like what artists use to cover a canvas before they start to paint. The gesso is sandable and will seal the foam. This will prevent your paint from melting the polystyrene and crreating a bad finish.Nicolas Haman
