 Hi  Karthik,
 
 "vetrans  pls  help"  is  really  a  bad  topic  title  to  grab  immediate  attention  of  everyone.
 Please  do  not  create  duplicate  threads  for  same  query,  have  merged  both  for  now.
 You  can  bump  your  original  thread  if  none  has  replied.

 Best  suggestion...dont  try  it.  Using  the  Vinyl  sheet  is  cheaper  and  more  easier  IMO.
 
 But  if  you  still  want  to  DIY,  use  any  water  resistant  paint.
 Some  colors  I  could  think  of  natural  were  -
 1.  Deep  blue
 2.  A  slightly  darker  shade  of  green
 3.  Earthy  brown
 
 Cheers,

 To  my  knowledge  no  commercial  paints  now  available  in  market  will  be  able  to  sustain  inside  the  water  painted  on  thermocole.  It  will  either  fade  or  peeled  off.  Also  slime  and  dirt  will  dim  the  colours.  It  may  also  affect  the  water  quality.  May  be  you  have  to  use  paints  used  for  painting  exterior  of  the  ships.  But  will  that  also  can  be  painted  on  thermocole,  I  have  no  idea.  
 If  such  a  good  paint  available  let  us  all  know.
