I need painting advice

I need to paint copper tubing, some copper fittings, and some pcv pipe. Is there a certain type of paint I should use on this project? If so please tell me

Hope that is PVC pipe, PCP is something very different.

Almost any paint will work on the copper, the PVC is a little harder and is expands and contracts quite a bit. I recommend Krylon Fusion spray for the PVC ( it is made specifically for plastics). Walmart carries it. Use the fusion on the copper also.
