A very light, smooth surface to cover foam?

Hi, I've got sort of a complex prop I need help with... the gist of it is that it needs to float. Our goal is to build this around some sort of remote control helicopter - maybe one of those fan disc things you always see at the mall. Therefore, in order to float, it's going to need to be VERY light.

I am having no trouble building the entire thing out of floral foam and craft foam, but I need something to cover it with so that it will have a smooth, paintable surface. I have thought about paperclay sanded down to a very thin layer, but I'm wondering if even that would be too heavy. Any thoughts?
