Painting on Fiberglass Resin

Okay. So I've been looking around, doing google searching, reading through the different fiberglass threads, and I'm not finding anything

I'm planning to cosplay Konohana Sakuya from Persona 4.


I'm planning to fiberglass the helmet, the flower, and the leg pieces. Depending on cost, I may fiberglass the "wings" as well. But that's unlikely since it probably won't be cost effective since I need the costume by May.

So, I'm wondering about what type of paint would be recommended for painting on fiberglass resin?

I've been using standard spraypaints, after presanding the surface a bit to smooth things out

After smoothing and a coat of primer (spray primer is fine) just any spray paint should be fine.
