i used craft acrylic paint that i got from the discount store for a buck.
i used the pattern that was already on the ash tray.
and yes i did seal it, because i painted the bottom and didnt want it to get scratched up.
i used a spray acrylic sealer in matte, and used 3 coats of it.
if i was going to do this again i would use a gloss spray - because i like it more and it would look like glass!
