Does anyone know what kind of paint to use on a polystyrene ceiling rose? Thank you

  • No literature with the product? Most such things are designed with the expectation that you'll use the same paint you use for the ceiling. – isherwood Jul 17 '20 at 18:05

Most of the polystyrene trim pieces have a white coating already applied.

This can be painted over with acrylic latex. If no coating is present use a latex primer.

Some suggest using a latex primer first to aid in color uniformity.

Use of oil based paint is not suggested.

Have a look at this article on foam moldings for more info
