5. OK - plus the acrylic seems to stay sticky

I painted some magnets with a shimmery acrylic based paint. Even though I let them dry for several days, when I got them back out, they are effectively glued together by the paint. If I want to use those magnets, I will have to peel, scrape, or sand off the acrylic!

I'll look to see what alcohol based paint I can find to do the base color. I do want the color to be completely permanent. The magnets will be used as needleholders on fabric and no one would want the color coming off on their work. Generally, they are sold in pairs - you put one on each side of the fabric and can put needles on them. I also use them to hold charts in place for reference or protective tissue over some of the more delicate embroidered areas.
