Hey everyone,  

Does anyone know where you can get a type of paint that you can put on the bulbs to restore the color of regular sings of lights? 

I have some items that have colored light bulbs and the color has faded or worn off. The bulbs still work, but I don't want to have to buy new bulbs. I live in Texas so the sun fades the lights pretty fast. 

 

Thanks for the help.

I could be wrong, but I think it was something like stained glass paint.

One of the people on The Great Light Fight last year painted each bulb, so there is something out there, but I don't know what it is.  I have not used colored incan lights for decoration in several decades.

Use LEDs instead of incans and the problem goes away.

I remember seeing that on the show. I have started getting LED'S, however, some of my wire frames have colored incans and I'm not going to go through the hassle of switching them to LED.

I wouldn't have the patience to sit down and paint all those bulbs, no way.  :D

I have the patience, but I also have a 4 and 9 year old that would love to do it. Lol
