    Hey guys, I'm looking to do an intricate paint job on my red O3DS XL and seal it with a couple coats of 2k Clear Coat (Automotive sealer). Does anyone have any ideas as to what kind of paint would adhere to the plastic 3DS faceplates? I'd like to use a brush and get really detailed, so I was thinking of using acrylic. Would it really matter if I'm sealing it with 2k Clear Coat? If this isn't the right place for this question, please redirect me.

    I'm not sure but you will definitely want to sand it down to make the paint adhere better. It's in the correct section, don't worry :)

    Of course. It's not my first rodeo :P, I've painted consoles before but it was never anything intricate, just spray paint colors.
