krylon fusion is your friend, its a special paint designed for plastics, use masking tape to tape off your designs so you know where to paint

yeah krylon fusion is sold at almost any hardware store, just tape off the sections you want to be a different color, and start spraying, it takes a long time to dry though, a cool thing is, i spray painted my orange cannon during winter outside when its windy, and the paint turned crackly, i'm not sure if it was the wind or the cold, but it made for a cool texture

When I went to go get some Krylon Fusion paint I couldnt find it. First I went to my local hardware store then home depot and then lowes and I still couldnt find it. Then about a week ago I stumble over some and I have to say in about the most unlikely place, Walmart. So the moral of the story is check out walmart if you cant find some fusion paint. Its proably cheaper to.

i wanted some better choises so i went to autozone and looked there and they had a large selection of stuf and apparently dupli-color makes adhesion promoter, it helps auto paint stick to auto plastic so i tried it and first i wiped down the surface wit alcohol and it worked realy well
