Is acrylic pain poisonous?

So, im doing thia big project for my boyfriend, im basically papermacheing a pickle jar to make it have a handle and everything. Then im planning to drill a hole through the lid to add a straw and everything, Than painting it, I was painting the lid with acrylics and it decide to cross my mind that maybe the acrylic could get inside somehow and poison him or something? I wanna make sure this is safe for him, here is the lid and the acrylics have no warnings on the bottles (dont have the packaging anymore)

    Acrylic paint is not food safe, but I don’t think having it on the outside would hurt anything. That said, I’m not sure that a jar decorated with papier mache and acrylic paint would hold up too well as a drinking container.
