My goal is to craft a "golden" walnut by painting two empty shell halves and then glue them together.
So, my requirements on the paint are:
- color will be golden if this matters
- should not smear off
- should not hide surface nuances
- somewhat water proof, but not expected to be put into water
Then, I'm going to glue the shell's halves together. The glue must be reliable and yet allow though to easily open the shell (one time is enough, but if you could stick the halves again, that would be awesome).
