Need some paint advice.

Ok I have a silver and a black piece of plastic I'm base coating. Im using some yellow and green paint from Kansas hydrographics and I'm wondering about the yellow. Would it be recommended to throw a couple coats of white on the pieces and then a couple coats of yellow or just layer on the yellow until desired coverage? I'm not sure which way would be the most economical.

    White will make the color pop plus help hide the dark color id give it at least a coat of white first

    @TraumaChaser I would definitely use a white base first for yellow. I personally  do a white base almost always on ant light color

    White first, it covers better then colors do, then shoot your yellow, just using the yellow will take coat after coat after coat and it still won't give you the color you're looking for

    Yeah....I was to impatient to wait for a reply and just decided to play it safe and just go ahead and lay a couple coats or white down first. Thanks for the confirmation everyone!
