I used Cramolin EMIlac (EMV-Lack) that comes as an aerosol spray. It contains silver plated copper particles and provides 60 to 65 dB attenuation. Very easy to apply, and the result even looks good. Cost per can is about 20 Euros. One can should be sufficient for 0,8 m2.

Don't know if shielding makes a difference, but it is nice to know it's there, anyway.

Maybe you can find some inspiration here:

The concept here is that the SDRplay is not a device but just a module. You have to build the device yourself, that is the idea.

Picture below is a metal case available on eBay, it gives you another choice if you don't want to create one by yourself.
