Hi,
I'm shaping the surfboard completely by myself. Would appreciate your valuable advise what is better - to do painting (I use acrylic paints) on sealant layer and the put fiberglass or firstly do fiberglassing, hot coat, sanding and paint over this sanded layer? And after that laminate.
I consider the first option is the best for securing your painting from water

Both are OK, the first option is better for spray painting, 2nd option is better for using posca pens or similar.

Cheers

Not sure why your foam would melt with acrylic paints, is it water based acrylic paint?
Are you spraying PU foam or EPS foam?

PU foam with water based acrylic paint, such as Montana Gold should not melt the foam.

It's my fault. That paint contained spirit or smth like that which is melting EPS.
finally, I found perfect one suitable for me.

thanks!

Really happy to hear that it worked out,

Just to add that eps foam we usually spray after the first layer of glass or on the top layer, as the eps has small holes which can make the paint look speckled.

There are no more committed people on the planet than surfers. We fall down a lot. We turn around, paddle back out, and do it over and over again. Unlike anything else in life, the stoke of surfing is so high that the failures quickly fade from memory
