Default Painting Snap Clips

Has anyone ever painted a snap clip? I tried spray painting them but they didn't come out well. Any suggestions would help.

Might I ask why you would want to paint one of those? Wouldn't whatever you are putting on it just cover it up anyways? Also, I think you can buy them in colors.

I'm putting small appliques on them and I just think they look cuter with matching clips.

What if you covered them in a ribbon of a matching color? There are some quick and easy tutorials around....

Have you tried checking at Michales or home depot? I wonder if the spray paint you use for outdoor furniture would come out better since it's made for metal?

I have been looking for a good price on antique brass snap clips with pads, and haven't come a cross any. I thought about spraying the silver with a metallic Rustoleum spray paint. Anyone ever tried?

i had researched this a while back 'cause nail polish didn't work

but never followed up finding the proper primer . . . galvanized metal-etching spray primer.

i was planning on visiting our local auto parts store . . . or visit a auto body repair business to see what they said . . . with the hopes that they'd do a few for me!
