painting clay caves

Anybody with experience painting clay decor for safe use in aquariums? I bought 5 clay tunnels off ebay and I'm not sure the color is going to work for me.

Krylon fusion is the paint of choice once you're able to choose your colors. Paint them, and give them 3-5 days to offgas (stop smelling like paint) before you place them in your tank.
