    This is a VERY BAD IDEA. This is a fire hazard.

    Incandescent lights get very hot and the acrylic paint you're using can melt and/or catch fire.

    You could easily do the very same project using an LED light instead. Use the type with a plastic housing, and use a lower wattage bulb (example linked below). You could also use permanent markers instead of opaque acrylic paint.
