    Hi,

    I have the same problem with a cage I bought and found this
    website: http://eartheasy.com/live_nontoxic_paints.htm
    It has a list on non-toxic paints and an orgamic paint
    called Real milk paint http://www.realmilkpaint.com
    I haven't tried any yet but it's an idea.
    Hope this helps!
