Paint advice needed (metal)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I don't really know anyone I can ask about this type of thing.

Basically, I want to paint a pair of glasses (spectacles) because some it has come off. They're nice, light and rimless (the lenses need to be changed anyway) and they're just gathering dust (old prescription).

The important thing to note is that they're flexible - made of light, wiry metal (don't know which metal). There's no hinge, so the arms need to bend at the desired point to fit.

So, taking into account that they'll need to be shaped (with heat?), which paint should I use?

Also, what would be the easiest way to remove the existing paint? It can be scratched off but that might damage them.

Thanks.

(It's also slightly-related to Head-Fi, in that my current pair don't always agree with the over-ear cable on customs, but this pair seems to have no effect.)
