    Painting question. which is best??

    So i just got grimlock a few weeks ago, and his cheap looking grey plastic is bothering me now...lol Since i have so many preorders pending i cannot pay some one to paint it for me. So im going to attemp to do this my self.
    I really like the silver looking on the pic below.. so....

    Question, im gonna use a flat black as a base coat. What type and brand of silver should i use to get this effect? im gonna have to use spray cuz i do not have an airbrush.

    Whats the best way? also how do i avoid the orage peel or does that even happen anymore? i
