Has anybody tried this craft foam primer from Krylon? link

It seems that if it works it could speed up some work I have planned around terrain tiles.

I'm traveling this week for business but will try it when I get home.

I did some Googling.
It isn't for polystyrene/styrofoam.
The first thing I did when I got an image was to zoom in on the label. "Extremely flammable". Right away we know it will melt styrofoam.

It's specifically for "craft foam" which is a totally different polymer. I think it's those colored sheets that are a few millimeters thick.

Okay folks, it works. I tried it on my terrain tiles I am constructing using insulation foam tiles (Foamular by Owens Corning). There was not 'melting' or any damage to the foam tiles. It took a while to dry but that could also be the North Carolina humidity. Once it was dried, I was able to use textured spray paint and it adhered nicely. It will take probably two cans to do all my 2x2 tiles (12) but it seems to go on nicely.

I will try to post pictures once I get my new laptop set up.
