Hi Guys

As my 15 year old Daughter was very interested in my first year of keeping bees last year, this year I have built a hive, bought all the bits and ordered the bees to get her started with her own hive.

I personally like a drab green hive as it blends in well with the countryside.

However, she, being a teenager :toetap05: and a bit arty would like to paint flowers and bees on her bee hive. :ack2:

are there any paints she can use that are non toxic to the bees that is able to do fine artwork and is waterproof?

Cheers
pete

And UV resistant? You need the 'graffiti' forum, I think!

PS should you not have bought her a shiny new Beehaus and some transfer designs? Tell her to be careful about painting bees on it - they might attack them! And definitely no hornets!
