There is a new spray paint from Krylon that is supposed to be better 
suited for plastics. Standard water based paints do not work well on 
most plastics. 

there are some laquer and oil based paints that might have some 
success. Still overall painting plastics is not a very good solution. 

That is why the new Krylon spray paint is interesting.
