5. To turn the paint into white/black- first desaturate the layer or don't (experiment with it), then go to Image>Adjustments>Variations, set to maximum Coarse and click on the white body to the right, if you want black color click on the black body, and then to make the black more realistic use a small amount of Photo Filter blue color...
If there are some spots that need correction use the Eraser, Smudge or Clone Stamp Tool, or simply over brush it with the Brush Tool-experimenting will learn you how to do things in PS
