Anyone know what paint adhears best to ping-pong balls?

It's for manipulation so I figured this was the best place to post the question. Figured someone had done it.

Is this to simple/difficult a question or the wrong forum or what?

I don't know the answer to "what paint adheres best to a ping pong ball ?" , but I wonder if you could save yourself some trouble by purchasing different colored balls ? Which colors do you need ?
I've seen them in different colors such as at this link :

http://glowstickfactory.com/lasers.asp

Scroll down to "Rainbow Assortment of Ping Pong Balls" .

They come in Purple, Blue, Green, Orange, Yellow and Red , and of course good ol' white ping pong balls.

Would any of those colors do for your purposes ?

Also check out Krylon Fusion™ Plastic Paint .
