  • Painting Beads

    Hi everyone.

    Painting on smooth surfaced acyrlic beads.
    I don't want tp spend too much money as it's only one necklace (well i could make pendants aswell cos im not going to use all the beads). So painting them black would still be fine.

    Do I use:

    enamel paint
    glass paint
    metallic spray paint
    another
    ?
    edit- I do have some acrylic paints at home but have only used acyrlic paint on paper before. Of course would have to varnish to get a nice finish. I would like to try another kind of paint if possible.

    Any hints would be great !

    Also, where can I buy shimmer-powder from cheaply (to create an opal/glitter effect on fimo). Maybe it is the same thing as those craft powders people use for stamps.
