Painting eyelet chain (Moved by moderator)

Clean the chain in Meths. Let it dry on kitchen towel.

Put the dry chain on a piece of card, hold one end and draw your paint loaded brush along it.

Pick it up at one end with tweezers and drop it onto another piece of clean card several times. That removes excess paint.

Hang the chain from one end to dry. Acrylic works best as it dries before the links get welded together with paint. If that happens, you didn't get rid of the excess.

The same method works on manageable lengths of wire too.
