Ok so here's the thing. The Silhouette Portrait is limited to 8 inch wide vinyl, most of the widely available vinyl comes in 12 inch width's. You'd have to cut the size of the vinyl down more so than normal and you may feel restricted slightly by the smaller size.
For $100 more on amazon you can get the full Cameo and starter kit with an extra cutting mat, blade and other goodies. It's absolutely worth the extra money and the only other accessory to add would be an x-acto knife, plus vinyl obviously.

What I would like to know is how you went about spraying yours.
I have read a fair few posts but haven't noticed if anyone has asked the same question, sorry if I am double posting.
I simply sanded the hell out of them with red scotch-brite, degreased them, and painted them with Krylon Dual Paint + Primer. I was going to do a primer, base, clear paint job but after I read the reviews of the Krylon Dual I decided to use it.Edited by Jameswalt1 - 4/23/14 at 12:35am
