**I wasn't sure where to post this**

My boyfriend and his band decided that they all needed to wear ear muffs for practicing so that they won't be hearing background noises while they practice. He had this pair of red ear muffs sitting around and both he and I are huge Pokemon nerds (members of our high school Pokemon Battle Club even). So we decided to paint his ear muffs to look like Pokeballs. We think the ear muffs turned out nice!

We didn't have the right materials to make the word POKEMON look right on the top and the paint on there dried so fast that it cracked and started to come off. Suggestion? I'm not sure what kind of paint we should have used or how we could get POKEMON on the top.

neat idea! try nail polish for the word, or if you have to use acrylics use a clear sealant on top

That's cute!  You might try fabric paint for the top.  It tends to have a little give to it.

SQUEEEE! I love these. As for the top you could also use car touch up paint pens...like from walmart. They are super strong and there are literally like hundreds of colors.
