What Kind of Paint Should I Use?!

I'm making a Peter Pan painting and it has him and Wendy and the brothers flying over Big Ben and going to the star that is Neverland. I want to make them as silhouettes and make the background a watercolor possibly, although I'm not sure. I have the whole sketch drawn on the canvas, I just don't know what kind of paint to use to make the painting have depth and popping out.  Please Help! Thanks:)
