I want to paint my gun in camo. its got the plastic stock. Anyone done this before? if so what paint did you use? I just finished painting up the boys Model Tank over the holidays and they sell oil based paint in a spray can for plastic models. was thinking to use that but at 15 bucks for a 100ml spray can that is a very expensive way to go. was thinking maybe super cheap auto or recpo for their automotive paint in spray can...maybe they have something like a undercoat for plastic bumpers i could spray on first.

Any ideas?

What about that hydrodipping? Actually, just looked at it and its not cheap for a kit on Aliexpress.
