i want to paint my pacifica (seems like everyone who wants to paint is painting one of these, thought i'd hop on the band wagon )

my design will be the union jack probably, maybe with some added graffiti style if i can be bothered but i was wondering what would be the best paint to use.

my body is just wooden with varnish if that makes any difference... i'm too sure

thanks in advance
