Is it meant to be transparent? If not, is it meant to be textured in a specific way?
I’m trying to figure out why spray painting it the colour of the wrap is insufficient?

I have a more or less cylindrical styrene item, but with compound curves, that I want to wrap snugly (not like a draped tarp) for use as a flatcar load. I've thought about shrink wrap, but I am concerned about the heat melting the item. Does anyone have any experience with using shrink wrap over a styrene item? Can anyone suggest an alternative?
