Someone to paint a white, strong & flexible ring from Shapeways

Hi,
I would like to buy a ring from Shapeways but before buying it in silver I would like to buy it in plastic to see if I actually like it on my finger so I was wondering if someone would be able to paint it for me.

The main colour would be silver with a little bit of green and blue on the face.  As for the paint I was thinking of enamel or acrylic depending on which would last longer.

Would anyone be interested in doing this?

Side note: Would I get a better response by having this thread in the Art section of this forum?

This may be a dopy question, bug why can't you paint it yourself?

I don't have any talent whatsoever when it comes to painting or art in general and I guess that I'm nervous about screwing it up.

But I guess that I could give it a try given that the 3d print and the paints are not that expensive.

Here's a thought: I don't know where you are, but, in the UK, some model shops, especially Games Workshop, hold miniature-painting sessions. You could take your ring, and ask an expert to paint it while you wait.

I actually do live in the UK (London specifically).

That seems like a really good idea, thank you.
