Another option for making dots is to use nails with varying head sizes from small finishing nails to larger flat head nails. I pre-drill a hole in the end of a wooden joining dowel, dip the point of the nail in Elmers glue and tap it into the dowel for a handle. I use a head half of the size I want the final dot, barely dip the head in acrylic paint and touch it on. After drying overnight, I can put a smaller dot inside for a double circled eye.
BTW, what is the advantage to powder coating with UV clearcoat and acrylic painting with UV clearcoat?

I found this in looking for comparisons on your question: http://weldingweb.com/archive/index.php/t-61624.html
I think the main reason is that the Z-Rays were powder coated in the first place. Everything eventually gets chipped or needs to be repainted, or if you're Markskor, thrown deep and caught on a rock The additional UV coating is just another layer for either.
Nothing lasts forever.
