So... what is the best way to paint the screws and other various bits that I keep spotting in these beautiful builds?  The wife vetoed my original build idea of walnut and hammered copper.  The test came out rather orange.  I'm into some of the black and even the gold finishes shown in this thread but the little details like the heads of screws are giving me a little pause.

Just punch holes in a piece of cardboard, stick the screws in the holes and shoot the heads with black spray paint. I have done this many times when black screws were not available in the size I needed.
