    This would definitely make it my easiest of the movie customs. Basically what I did was dry brushed the figure with some gunmetal silver enamel and after letting that dry for a bit, I lightly applied some strokes of silver acrylic. After all that is said, I painted up the eyes with some red acrylic and soon enough I have my very own murderous little robo vulture. How delightful, yes! :D

    wait..testors enamel? Man Ive had some BAD luck with that. Softens the plastic in spots and never dries. Seriously, I have a 25th anniv serpentor helmet that I painted testors enamel gold, and ive even wiped it all off, and its still sticky.

    I've had some bad experiences with enamel myself. Really you're better off using acrylics, however enamel such as gunmetal silver and just regular silver are perfect for dry brushing. Works wonders with movie figures. DO NOT use enamel for soft plastic, that paint will remain sticky for a long time.
