Chopsticks with an acrylic coating- are they decorative or food safe?

by Teresa

My husband brought home some chopsticks from Japan. One set was ornately painted and finished in a polyurethane coating. The other set is painted and has an acrylic coating which has a painty odor. Are either one of these safe to eat with?
