This is going to sound a bit harsh, but if you read any of my other posts you will see that that is not my intention. However...
Painting is something that you have to DO. You will read that you have to sand and then prime and sand again repeating this cycle until you are at 600 grit and then paint and sand repeating until you are at 1500 grit and on and on, but when you actually go to do it, you will either wait too long between coats or not long enough and you will ruin the paint. Or you will sand too much and ruin the paint. Or there will be too much humidity and you will ruin the paint.
You WILL figure it out, but it will take doing, not reading. About the 3rd time you repaint, you will be fairly happy with the result.
Go to the hardware store and buy a couple rattle cans of black paint and a can of flat overcoat. You will also need 300, 600 and 1500 grit sandpaper. Then find an old piece of plastic (old cowling?) and see if you can get a smooth coat of paint on to it.
