oil based paint

ive just shaped my first board and a friend is painting it for me. ive read that you sould use an acrylic paint. i tested an oil baced paint on the foam and ther was no reaction to the foam. is this oil based paint going to affect the resin in any way. will the resin stick to the painted suface? thanks.

definately use water based paint (acrylic). the laquer, or whatever the thinner is, in the oil based paint will be attacked by the resin and your beautifully painted blank will become a complete mess. good luck. pablo
