1. Remove emblem (and disassemble in case of the bowtie);
2. sand with fine grit paper;
3. rattle can primer;
4. satin black (or whatever your color) rattle can;
5. If you're a perfectionist, one or more clear coats.

And make sure to do all this is a dust free environment!

dude, go to auto zone and get some black vinyl film. just stretch it over the emblems, take a heat gun or blow dryer to make it more pliable, then cut off the excess with a new razor blade..

Whatever system you use follow the directions to a t, I would recommend rust oleum plastic paint, it's at loses and home depot, its meant for patio furniture and outdoor stuff so it's tough and sun resistant. Be sure to clean with wax and silicon remover, and scuff before painting. Hard to go wrong if you use a plastic specific paint and follow the mfg directions.

I got boerd waiting for the paint to dry when tinting tail lights so I took off the emblem quick, performed the above instructions and used the nightshade. Looks good!
