Painting my bumpers

I'm sure this has been talked about many times on here . So I did a search first but couldn't find the answer I was looking for.
I'm about to have to paint my ps front bumper and I just tested three paints on a piece of scrap sheet metal . Spray on bed liner . It ran really bad and I didn't like the look at all. Rust oleum satin. And rust oleum textured . I like the look and coverage of the textured but I want some feedback on it before I paint it.
If you have used it let me know what you think
Did it fade?
Dose it stain from mud?
Will it clean easy after mudding?
And if you have some pics please post them so I can see a finished bumper
Thanks every body for the help!

I used rust oleum textured for my grill. Looks good. Good coverage. Clean up is a bitch. It's too textured. It will destroy a microfiber cloth or any sponge. You will need to clean it up with a brush. And you can't use a shammy or chamois to dry it since it will destroy that too...

Thanks for the feedback. Kinda sucks though..
I was going to buy it powder coated but the skid only comes bare steel and I fig I prob have a hard time matching them up. So I called line x and they said 200 bucks w the anti fade junk in it.
I may end up painting it satin

+1 on powdercoating. Expensive though looks better and more durable.
