Default Seaplane and paint

Anyone have any experience using krylon H20 or acrylics/poly on a foam seaplane? Will it hold up to water flying? I'm guessing it will but Im new to this.

Any info would be great.

First , I test the paint on scrap foam. Have used Krylon H20 as well as Testers Spray enamel. On depron foam, I spray very lightly, allowing coats to dry between applications. Do this progressively for a build up versus gobbing it on. Should be lots of threads on this.

Thanks, I've been through the threads, I guess I should have been more direct in my question.
Will krylon h20 hold up to water flying?
Will it get that slimy feeling when wet?
How about polycrylic?

Thanks

h20 when dry will be like any other paint, water dosn't reconstitute it after it is dry.
