Hi,
I really want to paint some beads with Martha Stewart's metallics acrylic paint, but I noticed it says 21 days to cure. 21 days!? has anyone else used this or is there a way to make the paint set sooner?

Well I was thinking of painting over some wooden ones, or just buying unfinished wooden ones and painting them.

I wonder if the full 21 days to cure is for it to cure fully on a difficult surface like plastic, ceramic, metals, or glass for better adhesion, but dry to touch in less time.  You probably would be fine on a wood surface; if it is unfinished wood, it would be porous, and grip the paint better.  You should be fine painting the beads you have.
