1. Wash them is soapy water, and let dry
2. Spray on a coat of primer so that the paint will stick to the resin.
3. Any type of acrylic paint will work just fine

Primer will be the most important step because if you don't prime the resin and just paint them, you risk the paint not adhering to the resin and flaking off. I use Pro Form High Build Primer/Filler in light grey (PF 637)

Thanks alot for that information on painting. Is this an auto primer that I can buy at a auto store. I'm very new with this Predator building stuff, but I'm having a great time learning new things.

I've used black rustoleum car primer found at Home Depot. Personally, I haven't used the "filler" primers. I fear they will fill in the smaller details (Could be a worthless fear, but that's just me). Don't forget a clear topcoat to seal in the acrylics. I believe most people use Krylon, but go figure, it's not found at HD, but rather Walmart and Kmart...

Thanks so much I have one about 17 miles away, I'll see what I can find.
Michaels will be your best friend, You can also look for Hobby Lobby or Jo'Anns both should have the same stuff as Michaels.

Hobby Lobby in my opinion is better, not because I worked there as a teenager but their prices and selection has ALWAYS been better than Michaels
