Safe to use fairy garden pieces in tank??

Hi! Sorry if this is a silly question but is it safe to use the little fairy garden houses and decorations and stuff in my tank?? I wasn't sure because of the paint and everything that they're made with.

If I'm picturing the right things (like the castles, etc, you'd use in a fish tank), most of those items are made of resin so they're OK.

I had considered something similar for awhile (because who wouldn't want to live in a fairy garden?!?!). The only thing to really avoid are the pieces made of metal, and I personally didn't want to deal with any real wood. I think painted houses and such would be alright also.

One thing I did once I know what kind of fairy garden item I'd like, i looked for aquarium pieces that were similar (like a bridge or a chair) because I knew they'd be alright handling the humidity and they'd be plastic. Not sure if that helps or not.
