Either of these options will work fine. If you coat real wood, just make sure you get a good even coat, personaly I'd use the epoxy rather than the sealer.

Google building plywood tanks and see what epoxy resin they use. I think they use just plain fibreglass resin. Also google building 3d backgrounds. I think they also just use plain Fibreglass resin over the styrofoam.
