    It doesn't adhere like wood, will need to spruce them up in a couple years

    I do not know how well the paint will adhere to the styrofoam. Time will tell.

    Might be easier just to leave them white but I think the colour helps with orientation and it looks cool

    The Rust-Oleum paint I used is weathering well. It adhered well. My only issue was getting some on the slide portion of the door. It makes it difficult to open.

    Just seen this thread reappear ... I use sugar dampened with a little water or bakers fondant in my mini-nucs. Works well and no spillages when you move them.
