what can I use on dow blue styofoam that will work on small dings. I have tried bondo, but it melts into the styrofoam. I need something that dries fairly fast, and can be sanded and painted.

most any type of glue like that will melt the foam (model aircraft cement, superglue, etc). although maybe not perfect, try using plain old white school glue (Elmer's brand or something), or standard wood glue (for carpenters). they are fairly natural and shouldnt melt it.

I recommend polyurethane glue.  It dries
extremely hard, can be sanded easily, and is
completely waterproof (unlike the white
and carpenter's glues suggested by John).

I use Gorilla Glue, but Titebond also makes polyurethane glue.
