Hi,

yes, this is certainly feasible. Copper is easy to paint. Be cautious not to use metallic paint otherwise - if the coat is too thick - you could possibly short components on the PCB. Also be sure to mask any contact surfaces.

P.S.: You're doing this on your own risk. Warranty void! biggrin.gif

Regards,
Niko
