    I used to use a product called Lacryl to paint vinyl. Lasted years and was made for outdoor signs and vehicle lettering, so you know it's durable...

    here's their website.

    Color Bond does what Krylon Fusion wish it could. Comes in a bunch of colors from the tuner and classic line as well and is relatively inexpensive in comparison to its quality. Details could be done in hobby grade acrylic paints such as Vallejo Acrylics(My personal choice for paints as well as most on Statue making/Building Forum http://www.statueforum.com/) But most hobby acrylics will do with precision and care.
