I'm also a fan of Krylon fusion, but I'll probably use acrylic or something similar for some detail work.

sand, primer it, paint, clear coat - make sure you use a few thin coats rather than one heavy coat

I would also recomend "wet" sanding with a high grit wet/dry sandpaper say 1500 grit, in between clear coats. Gives it a nice smooth and even look acorss the surface biggrin.gif

I don't know if I would use Acrylic. I used krylon fusion and it works great, bonds really well to plastic with no problem. That's what I would normally suggest.

Try sanding it off first, using a high grit. Then prime it before painting.

I wouldn't recommend to anyone ot paint the controls, they feel very sticky afterwards
