There is a type of spray paint called Krylon Fusion that is specially made to adhear to plastics. I have heard good results from modders about this paint so I would say try that.

Just take the sucker apart and paint it

I however used normal spray paint, and alot of it came off, so I just drew on it with a sharpie
