....yes and NO!!!

I have experimentally painted foam by spraying it with these cans from a distance of 18 - 24 inches. Logic behind it is that by the time the atomised paint+thinner mixture reaches the depron, most of the thinner solvent evaporates and the paint gets deposited on the surface.

Try it at your own risk. I wouldn't.

I have not used spray paints till now.... I use Fevicryl fabric paints which are available in any stationery shop.... they are water soluble and stick well to the foam.  Once dried its water proof as it is acrylic based paint....

Well I been into aeromodelling since I was in School....  had won the "WINGS Open" at "Bombay" (as it was known then) in 1985 for control line aerobatics (was doing my graduation at that time) and had received a big gold trophy....  Mr Bhivandiwala organised it and gave good awards.
Our team had won the following medals:-
1.   Gold for Control Line Aerobatics
2.   Silver and Bronze for Control line speed
3.   Bronze for Free Flight Glider
Sharma Models helped us train to win the medals

Use Fevicryl (Rs 15 per small bottle) with a brush as suggested by Shobhit17 sir.
Or use coloured tape (Rs 35-40 per roll)

I used to do fabric painting few years back, but haven't used on foam - will try and update.
Fabric paint (Acrylic) should work,It's available everywhere and is cheap.  good fabric artist can apply it better than a spray paint .

Acrylic fabric paint is cheaper if you buy as pack of different colors. I think Camaline is cheaper than Fevicryl .

Had to this post three times, as I was typing in dark Bang Head
