You know, I just painted my calipers today. I found it MUCH easier to use a brush than to mask everything off. I just walked into the grass and sprayed gloss black engine enamel onto a small (3/4") brush, then walked back and painted very carefully. When the brush gets dry, go spray some more paint on it and repeat.
While I was at it, the hubs on the rear wheels were getting kind of rusty. Since I only had one brush (which was now covered in gloss black enamel), I sprayed some silver engine paint into the lid from a plastic Pepsi bottle, then dipped a Q-Tip into the paint and wiped it all over the hubs.
I also found that it helped immensely to wear a surgical glove on the hand holding the brush. Found that one out the hard way, of course...
