Go to glowinc.com and check out their paints. I havent tried any yet, but it might be an option.

I use a fast dry enamel that I think I got at Hobby Lobby. The brand and color is Plasti-kote glow orange.

Works fine for me. Just make sure you clean the surface you plan on painting to remove any oil.

Appliance paint works great. I use white mostly and have put it on the front sight of hawkins muzzelloaders, shot guns, pistols, etc. Ain't never had it come off even with solvents and oil. It comes in a plastic bottle usually about twice the size of white out. Can get it just about anywhere. Just clean the surface, apply, and let it dry.
