If you're using spray paint then whatever brand you want matters, and a primer coat shouldn't be too important unless you're using bright colors. Spray paint sticks fine to plastic so it shouldn't be an issue. Anyone with more experience painting guns can correct me anywhere I'm wrong.

The most important concept in spray painting is what is called 'wetness'. it refers to how much paint is applied in a certain spot in a certain amount of time.
If the coat is too dry, the paint particles are drying before they hit the surface. this leaves a rough surface and the paint does not get a chance to 'sheet' together to form a glossy surface (assumiing you're using glossy paint)
If the coat is too wet, you have too much paint and too much sheeting causing runs.
The proper coat is ofcouse between these 2 extremes and usually consists of 2,3 or mabey 4 passes. 5 is over doing it.
If you can find it get one of those grip handles that mimic the use of a spray gun. either the original "can gun" or the rust-o-leum one. some of you may think that it's not needed, but theres a reason why many tools have grips. I wouldnt use the can gun for graffiti art, but i would consider it nessassary for putting a straight consistant coat on a given surface. I have found both grips at wal-mart in both Cali and in Ohio
