plasticote is designed especially for childrens 'toys' but it is expensive. so long as its wipe clean (silk emulsion/egg shell etc) it will be fine. you can paint with a brush and give it a light sanding to remove the brush strokes, but it can take several coats this way. as su1866 has said, you can use a radiator brush. i prefer to spray wherever possible but i am impatient and hate waiting for things to dry. this is best done outside though as its especially bad for little lungs

If at first you don't succeed, hide all the evidence you tried
