Couple of questions about this foam. Can you paint it without any issues and if so what type of paint should I use? Also, can you fill in gaps etc. with Plaster of Paris and does it stick to foam very well?

Here is the start of my build up.

I would think the foam is not porous and may not hold the plaster and yes you can paint it with walmart craft paint , as my wife painted a foam cutout she made into a construction site for hot wheels heavy equipment , bulldozer, dump truck, back hoe, grader

I prefer a latex flat wall paint. Water based paint doesn't attack the foam.

I've got a can that was on clearance at the lumberyard because the color was "mixed wrong." It was a pale tan so it was perfect for scenery. It makes a good base color and any of the water based craft paints will work over it.
