What kind of paint should we use to paint seashells we picked up at the beach yesterday?

Update:

I don't care if you think I shouldn't paint them, that's not what I ask. If you don't have an answer to the actual *question*, DON'T ANSWER.

    Your best bet would probably be to use acrylic paints - it will last much longer. Let me offer you another suggestion though - before you paint them use a little bit of bleach diluted with water to clean them first - the paint will adhere much better.

    not sure how to find out what type of paint is on the door but i know that oil base will stand up to the outdoors better than latex because latex starts to peel and crack.
