I have heard you can use a cheap walmart paint and then bake them in the oven. I want to say 275 for 20-30 minutes. I have not tried this yet, but maybe it's something you can experiment with.

i have done both spray painting as well as hand painting which sounds time consuming but it really wasn't.

the spray paint will def leave a smoother surface but for those who live in cold weather or don't want to go outside to spray can always paint them.

i will post the process i used when test is complete but a few good brands i would suggest are:

if you use a primer, paint & sealer will always have the best results. a lot of people say they don't use the primer but i did.

rust-oleum excellent brand from home depot offers craft spray paint & brush on as well as the primer & sealer. high quality.

krylon spray paint & they have a spray sealerbrush on paint as well

delta permenamel great for metal & coats nice goes with surface conditioner & sealer

more to come....
And my point was I was sharing that if you don't want to have to waste the time & money to make them yourself, then there's a very inexpensive option & person to buy them from. I was just trying to help.

i used the krylon spraypaint for metals, wicker and other stuff, it worked great but a hint on the lighter colors don't try and cover them all in 1 coat or it will go on the underneath and goop up =( happened to my light pink ones lol but the black ones did much better =)

I haven't tried it but if I were to try I would use the "Painters Fine Markers". The ones that you shake and then push the tip down and the ink flows to the tip. Then use a sealer.

I have been making these for a while and this is what I have found works best: I use the spray paint from Lowe's (I want to try different brands to see if they're better but haven't gotten that far yet), prime, paint, and seal. Then I bake them in the oven. If I don't bake them they scratch even with the sealer. Also put on light coats of paint, otherwise the paint will bubble or crack. I usually do 1 coat of primer, 2 coats of paint, and 1 coat of sealer.

I've been painting my own for a few months now. I like being able to paint them the perfect color for whatever image I want to use. I use acrylic paint and paint them by hand (the lighter colors take several coats). It can be time consuming but the results are fabulous! After I get them painted and dried to my liking I adhere the image and seal it with a layer of et lite and then pour on the dome and get the bubbles out like usual. Anyway this is what I do and it works very well. There is no flaking when you punk holes. They do not scratch. I have been thinking about trying spray paint and a sealer or spray paint and the et lite seal but I haven't done it yet. I do tons of caps at a time so it doesn't seem like such a hassle. If I was doing one at a time I wouldn't want to go through that process 10 times a month but if I do a hundred at a time then I don't have to do it again for a while. sorry for the ramble but I wanted to share what I do so that maybe it will help some of you that were wanting to do it yourself. I know this thread is old but I think there is probably still some interest
