What about Hammerite could look good in the right colour and they have a lot of choice.

I'm not familiar with that Mic.

I know clear coat spray is pretty good. When I spray things I always do a final spray of clear coat but thats on metal, not sure how well it will take to plastic if the mic is plastic or metal.

Still think hammerite would look good and the finnish also.

Loads of versions of hammerite and the green colour hammered one would look really good. You need to roughen the surface up a bit to get a decent key. The green one is a bit sparkly in the light.
