Smoke factory tails

Can somebody post up a "how to" on smoking the tails? I mean i know you have to get some kind of black hobby paint and paintem. but Id like to know exactly what kind of paint, brand, etc. ...how many coats, and all that good stuff. because i am afraid i will end up making them too dark and wont be able to see through them. Also do is the paint shiny already or do they make a clear coat for the app too?
Thanks!!
Darin

Go to a hobby shop and buy "hobby tint", and a can of clear...

lightly scuff with steel wool, spray on even coats until desired darkness, then clear coat it.

each coat will add darkness, so you add to your liking.
