What are you using for the oil based paint?  It looked like small vials

Hello Snickersbc,

 

Welcome to the community.

 

Sorry for the delay in response I've been away from the office.\

 

It's just the standard small tube of oil base paint that you can purchase at your local craft store. I get mine from Michael's.

Any of the oil base paint that you use to paint on canvas will work.  

 

Thanks again for joining the community. Post some pictures of your bands once you get them completed. I would love to see them.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions. I would be glad to help.
