Default What type of paint for a prop?

I want to paint my 3 blade wood prop and would like some opinions as to which type of paint would be best for excellent adhesion?

I paint mine with Rustoleum Rattle cans. I then fine tune the balance with a polyurethane clear.

Adhesion is best served by surface prep and the primer underneath the color coats. I use Dupicolor aerosol primers, and Rustoleum for the color.
