Can I paint the lid to my iced coffee cup?

I have this clear coffee cup and a bright green plastic lid that I really dislike. I use a straw for it, so there is no mouth contact. Can I use acrylic paints on it to make it a little cuter? :)

    Ideally you would want model airplane plastic paint. The acrylic might peel. But beware of anything that might melt it. If I had a water based acrylic spray on hand I would go for it, then touch it up if it chips.

    Maybe. Not all plastics like paint application.

    There's a chemical reaction. A spot of glue

    to affix something top the lid might help.

    I buy one of those life-like coiled novelty

    items made for practical jokers. It looks

    like a fresh laid stool atop your sips.

    Lead paint will adhere better.
