Instructables

Can the pop tabs used in jewelry or chains be painted? And what kinds of paint should be used?

THey are just plain aluminum.  I doubt that they are coated with anything.  Clean a few with paint thinner and a green scrubbing pad to roughen them up just a bit and spray with enamel.  Should work great.  YOu 'll have to spray in several positions to get full coverage though.
Even better than painting is anodizing....
No 'ible. Put that one on the list.
Yup, definitely a good one to explore further.
Better always, with aluminium to etch-prime before painting, no need to "roughen" 'em.
