Paint for interior (pony on steering wheel, etc)

What sorta paint would I use for the running pony on the steering wheel and the "Mustang" script on the passenger side? I went to Wal-Mart today and they've got enamel and acrylic paint. I would assume that enamel is NOT what I need, but I want to check.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, goto a craft store and pick up a set of Acrylic pens. I looked into doing this but decided I didn't like the look.

I got some acrylic "outdoor" paint at wal-mart tonight for a dollar. I'll paint the horse on the steering wheel tomorrow and see how it looks.

Well im going to go the acrylic pens tonight or tomorrow and get it done on my car aswell i just need some help on my color choice. I have a sonic blue mustang with two tone black and grey interior, the horse and the mustang logo on the dash are in grey, So any input on what color i should use? And also if this does end up lookin shotty then how can i take it off without running the pieces themselves and fading them.

I tested mine on the pass side first, just so I wouldn't have to look at it if it looked like crap.

I'm using a brush, pens may work better, but I keep getting streaks in lines and stuff from the brush, so I haven't done it yet. If you wipe it off before it dries (in my experience...) it comes right off.

He does, but he said something like it rubs off? I dunno what he used to do it. Maybe he was talking about something else.

Besides the framing, I think it's foam with vinyl wrapped really well around it.
