Does anyone know what paint they use in the homemade bauble kits? I need to make 10 baubles so I would prefer to buy a tub of the paint and do it myself. I just want to make sure the paint is safe.

I've looked at the water based kits paints but just not sure if that would stick to the bauble confused

I'm going to be trying this tomorrow with standard kids paint. I never thought it might not stick! Failing that I'll try again with acrylic.
Will let you know how it goes fsmile

We've made these at our nursery before using standard kids paint and never had any problems smile

Standard paint works, mix in a little pva to make it a bit harder when it dries. Or acrylic paint.
