Canned spraypaint is great - it's not messy and it's the closest thing to
"plug-and-play". Unfortunately, they are only easy to use for painting over
a large surface, if the design of the model was so that you don't need to
spend a half roll of masking tape. :) Gunze used to have these Eva colors
in spraypaint cans, but I don't think they ever released it for Gundam
Colors.
