Paint advice

Hi everyone. This is probably a stupid question but some prop tutorials I have seen have listed latex paint as a requirement. I am not sure what this is. I live in Uk so maybe it is called something else over here? Could anyone recommend a type of paint if its not against the rules? Thanks

If they are referring to the type of paint to use on foam, they are simply saying that spray paint will eat away at the foam.(which is not always a bad thing, can add a distressed look which is always cool.) "Latex" paint is simply paint you would use to paint your walls or your house. Cheapest your local store has. I have used "Drylock" brand also which will weather seal whatever you paint. I also use polyurethane spray to seal the project upon completion. Hope this helps and remember, the best way to learn, is to simply try. Good luck!
