Painting Die

Hey there,
Recently I bought a set of die and the numbers are unpainted. I have tried using acrylics and just slopping it on, then wiping the excess off with a damp paper towel. The results I have vary each time, sometimes the number fills in great, other times I end up wiping it off completey. Is there an inexpensive way to get better results? I spent fifty cents and the acrylics look good, but I want an easier way of it getting done for just as cheap but with good looking rexults. Any ideas? 
A Sharpie or Paint pen. 

Congradulations. If you are painting nibs on your dice that often means they are of good quality. Cheap dice just do not roll properly and wear out quicker. Yes, I said wear out!
The potentcy of the 88 was that it was present, in reasonable numbers, when it was needed, They had them. We did not. And anything an enemy has which makes life unpleasant for you tends to earn a larger-than-life reputation.

I tried a paint pen my first time, it was the smallest I could find at the paint store (.1mm) and it was still too large. The die I bought are made by Game Science. I'll try a sharpie when I get a chance, thanks.
