I use acrylic paints (water-based) and purchase these from hobby stores. Enamel paints (oil-based) don't seem to bond well with the plastics used with action figures - tacky once applied. Unsure on the exact colour for the symbol, so you may need to bring the figure for a better paint match.

Hey mate

I use alot of Vallejo paints and they are excellent especially on plastics and rubber, You should be able to get them from any good hobby shop.
