A big online retailer of craft supplies is offering "custom painted safety eyes". The paint they are using is solvent based enamel *cringing*. The brand of which is NOT non-toxic, which accounts for the huge color selection.

It also means that 6 months to a year from now, the solvent based paints will cause the acrylic eyes to turn a yucky yellow. Not cute. These paints are designed to be used on model cars, etc., NOT on clear acrylic.

It also means that the products no longer qualify as non-toxic.

Oh well, good luck with that...
