    Minwax Question

    Hey all, I am using minwax for the first time on my Cessna build. I am wondering if poster board is to be minwaxed as well. I did a test run on a spare piece and it really soaked in quickly and made the poster board somewhat transparent. I want to use spray paint in the end. What are your...

    Foam board in snow?
