Whatever you do, dont use rem-oil, any other oil made for real firearms or aerosol sprays, they will eat away the o-rings and wear out the paintball gun. Use oil made for paintball guns or air tool oil. a paintball gun is essentially and air tool. the easiest way is to put 6 or so drops of oil into the place where you screw in the tank, then screw in the tank and fire a few shots. you dont need paint to do this.

You should use only manufacturer-recommended lubricant for your gun. Your gun's owners manual should tell you how to lubricate the gun. If youdon't have it then youcan go to their website.

The best paintball oil is Gold Cup oil and the best grease is Gold Cup Final Solution grease.

Really any non aerosol mechanical lubricant. aerosol sprays like WD40 melt orings. If you have a cheap marker like a tippmann of spyder, you can use three and one oil, but for more expensive electro pneumatic markers you should use an actual Paintball lubricant like sl33k or Hater sauce.
