What is the best method to paint this hideous clock

I have this wall clock
thats been in my family for 20-30 years. It's pretty ugly but i find it oddly unique likewise its managed to not be thrown out. I'm fairly certain its made out of polystyrene in Italy
I'd like to make a creative project out of the thing by painting it black and replacing the face and arms with new pieces. What is the best way to paint something like this? Do i need to strip or remove the current finish or paint prior to applying a new coat? It does have some detailing
that i'd like to preserve so i'm not if spray paint will work likewise im afraid the wrong solvent will melt the polystyrene.
