Default Hamster Safe Paints

I want to make hamster chew toys in different colors so what type of paint can I use? Is 100% water based and non toxic acrylic okay to use? Ive seen people use it to make hides but never for chew toys

Personally for chew toys i would use food colouring made from natural sources i.e. fruit/veg.
Because even if you use 'safe' paint it's not something i would want my hamsters chewing on intentionally and posibly ingesting.

I would agree 100% here! Even "non-toxic" paints sold in stores aren't safe to consume - they're at the very least plastic based which as we should all know by now is by no means edible, and that would include the water based acrylic in particular asked about. It's also wise to keep in mind that non toxic to humans absolutely does not mean 100% non toxic to hamsters since so many things that are perfectly safe for humans are extremely harmful to hamsters.
