    You can use an outdoor acrylic paint, the bottles all look alike so you need to look at the labels carefully

    Normal oil painting colours will do fine. It is easy to use painting brush of amall size with these paint tubes/ jars.

    Before you spend too much time on the project, just bear in mind that CDs quickly deteriorate outdoors. Perhaps the use of paint and varnish will help. Hate to rain on your parade, as they are so beautiful when they are first put outdoors.

    I would go with the Krylon paint for Plastic, and I also agree with Valerie. Over time in really hot temps, the CD's may warp, but that is OK it will give your fence a different look .

    Go to "Guidecentral" on youtube, loads of great ideas to be found for fancifying your old CD's. There is a great one using twine which you would need to seal with a poly or outdoor Modge Podge.Good luck and enjoy

    Don't paint them - keep them shiny and they' reflect in the sunshine until they deteriorate.
