my armor is ready for resin but my dad wanted to know if i was gonna paint the paper then resin it, or resin then paint it? what is the best option?

and what type of paint will stick the best and last the longest. in addition to the second question, do i need to put varnish or anything on top of the paint to make it last longer?

You resin first then you paint it.

Any spray paint like Krylon and Rust-o-leum will do as long as you apply a primer coat first.

I recommend semi-gloss/satin or flat clear coat but varnish (or lacquer) will also work.
