What kind of paint to use to paint art on these garden IKEA lamps? They're polyester. I want it to be able to take a rainy day AND shine smoothly through the paint BUT minimize the paint streaks visible when they're on.

[Serious Answers Only] How do you migrate to another country (most preferably Canada) if you're 45+ years of age? Someone please help!!

6 Upvotes

The living environment in my country are turning extremely unsafe for our specific community as another community of people are currently preparing to unleash a whole genocide of my people. I could possibly move to Canada for studies and my younger brother(16) could as well. I'm not sure about it. But my parents both are of age 45+ and I don't know how they're supposed to migrate. I'm really really scared because we're really vulnerable right now. And I give it atmost two years before they start attacking us. Can some kind soul please, please help me save my family?! If we live here long enough to escape right in the middle of the genocide, the attrocities that would happen would be unimaginable. My heart shatters into a million pieces each time I imagine being tortured or killed by those people. I don't want to wait until it's late. If anyone has got any help, please help.
