Default Painting a case.

Ok, I'm thinking of painting an old case of mine black for practice (it's currently beige and I’m also adding a window) What would be the best way to paint it? Without having to buy sprayers and other tools. Just maybe paint with a brush, maybe spray paint it? I've never done it before so i really have no clue. The case is plastic by the way.

Sand it down with really fine sand paper, and SLOWLY spray paint it black, dont put heavy coats of paint on or it will run or become bumpy, then put a final clear coat on, or wait for harper to give better instructions since he does that a lot now i guess...

from what ive experienced with plastic it usually comesout with a more perfect looking color if you use vinyl dye

sorta like spraypaint but stinks more and is made for plastics esp.
