Default durable paint for bottles

I was just given 2 cases of 22oz green bottles. I'd like to brew something strong to cellar sometime soon, but I'm nervous about cellaring in green bottles. So, painting the bottles to make them totally opaque seems like a good option(maybe like Brouwerij Huyghe bottles

Anyone have any advice on a durable paint for glass -- possibly even able to go through the dishwasher?

Unless you are going to cellar in the driveway, Green glass and an inside room away from the direct sun...You should be fine.
If you're set on painting, what about etching the glass first, then painting with a spray can of automotive paint?
Maybe a lot of work, but maybe VERY effective.

Seriously. I'm here for BEER

just put them in the cardboard boxes they probably came in and make sure they're covered. MORE than enough

don't paint. just get boxes to keep them in. as long as they aren't nailed with sunlight or strong indoor lighting, they won't skunk.
