    I usually put bumper stickers on my hives depending upon where I captured them or cut them out.

    Wow, nice set-up CharlieB. :thumbsup:
    I'm afraid mine are just regular latex paint. Now if you want to talk swarm catches, here's one, done just outside a neighbourhood pub door!
    I think G3 has a good one using an old motor oil case too!

    I have seen a person paint with a lace pattern on there hive. They paint the base coat (the color they want there lace pattern to be. Then put the lace over the paint after it dried. Then paint over the lace and remove. Here are some pics of the same concept but over different material.
