i don't know about tint but any flat primer or metal paint will work.

Don't forget to plug the hollow bottom with some Bondo.

Should be good for a future trip to the pokey. Or just leave it on a sidewalk somewhere and wait for the hilarity to ensue.

Testors Model Master OD Green in the spray can will be a pretty good match...

The stencilling is the tough part...you can do it several ways....cut your own stencils in card stock, and spray with yellow...or a technique I have used many times with artillery projectiles....

Spray the stencilled area first with the color of the stencil (in this case yellow) after it dries good use vinyl stick on letters for the nomenclature, then spray the entire thing with the green. After it dries, peel off the letters, revealing the yellow underneath, voila. Works good with arty rounds may be tough on a grenade.

The actual "stencilling" they use on grenades looks actually more like a stamp than true stencil and paint. If you were going to be doing dozens of them, it would pay to have a stamp made and do it that way, but for one its overkill....

But you need to fill it with sand first..

And there alway a laugh riot to toss into a car at a stop light!

Most sheeple wouldn't have a clue what it is supposed to be. Probably pick it up and scrunch their eyebrows up. The ex army and marines would hit the deck, open their mouth and plug their ears.
The ex airforce and navy guys would look and say "wow look at that big duck egg".
