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
