Painting the back of the tank

Has anyone done this? I just bought a new 29 gallon tank to move my Mantis into and instead of using the store bought background, I want to paint the back of the tank. Any suggestions or tips on how to do it or what to use is appreciated.

Thanks Rick! Did you have to spray many coats on the back to get it covered so that you can't see through it?
I started with an ocean blue and put a few coats on. You could still see through it, so I then took a deep, dark blue and went over it. It covered easier and came out well.
Thanks to both of you for the help!
