I cover the flat parts of foam scale planes with transparent wide tape, problem is its shinny surface.
I have tried to paint this tape but there seems to be no paint that holds to this surface (mylar?)

Do you know of any useful paint for this?

I wonder if lightly sanding the tape before applying the paint would help or not?

Yes, I tried, it has a better grip but not enough, you can peel it with a fingernail.

I use Doculam, obtainable at Staples, for covering on foam. Stickyback as is and can be heatshrunk. Can be roughed up with Scotchbrite but I don't bother.
