I'm working on a piece of art that requires me to use aluminum foil as the primary canvas. I've been using craft acrylic paint (the ones sold in plastic bottles at most craft stores), but I'm wondering if I should upgrade to more professional grade artist acrylic (or oil?) paint. I'm a bit clueless about paint types so any advice is welcome. [more inside]

A coworker of mine often complains that we do not have a toaster in the office. I have an unused one, and would like to paint her portrait on it as a humorous secret-santa gift for our office xmas party. I like to work with acrylics and india ink, but am afraid that they will peel off when they get hot. What paint/technique do you think will work best?
I want to make some paintings that basically look like this--basically some flat fields of hopefully compatible colors on canvas. I don't care if what I make is real art, I mainly just want to add some color to the room. I went to the craft store and was kind of confused by all the different options for paint. Let's just assume I pick a set of colors I like -- what do I need to buy to make the painting, other than a canvas? What kind of paints, which colors, what kind of brush, what else do I need? How do I mix the colors? I'm not under any illusions that I'm going to make anything good, I just want to get some colors down on canvas in a hopefully appealing way. If I picked a palate from a site like colourlovers, is there a way to order the paints premixed in those colors or what that be a bad idea?
