Hi, I was wondering if you could help me color lightbulbs.  They need to be green.  Would I use paint, or a coating of somesort, or what?  They will be used for light, also.

well i have no crafty answers. sounds kinda risky.  i know they sell glass paint but im not sure how that would go when heated.

but i do know that you can just buy green light bulbs

and for the trouble, i dont know what all the craftiness woudl be worth.

you could try just acrylic craft paint. it may not give you seamless coverage, but if you're just looking for the light effect it would work and it's not toxic.

Use solvent-based glass paint. Get a glossy one, not frosted.
