Hello, all! I've been hard at work on my first custom (I'll reveal it soon) and I've completed it except for the twist tie I used as a major component. The problem is that I have tried to paint it black using both acrylic paint and a sharpie. Both times, I also put on 2 thin coats of Future floor polish waiting 8 hours between coats for maximum sealing. However, whenever I bend the twist tie or, sometimes, just touch it for an extended period, the black coloration simply rubs off. I guess it might also help to know that the twist tie I am using is the kind that comes with most TFs, that semi-clear, mostly gray variety. Anybody have any ideas on how I can permanently color the twist tie black? Thanks!
