Good Questions: How To Paint Paper Lights?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

For our annual Christmas vacation home improvement project, my sister and I are going to paint or dye translucent paper lamp shades from Ikea to match colors in her living room. Any hints about what to use to get rich, consistent color on the shades? They're handmade paper, I think, from the Ikea Orgel series.

Thanks! Jeff
