What type of paint to use on plastic frame?

Painting a plastic frame of a large wall clock. Not sure if I should use a spray paint of an acrylic (with a brush). I ultimately want to give it a weathered texture.

    I'd use spray paint, just because I have more luck with getting my projects even-looking when I do. If it's plastic though make sure to sand it down a bit before you paint so that it adheres better.

    I used acrylic paint, American gloss enamels in black from Hobby Lobby. (Used a brush)Done mirror and picture frames. Good luck.

    Look for a spray paint that is specific to plastic. I think Rustolium makes one. I've purchased it at Walmart.

    I just got finished using Rustolium paint for plastics. Several very light coats and the finish is beautiful. Now matter how careful, I seem to have brush marks when painting smooth finishes.

    Spray paint is probably your best bet. Good luck!
