    i dont think it would, depends what paint you use. if its spray paint out a can make sure you use primer first otherwise the paint will flake and the finish will look seriously bad. and wash it first!!

    someone please correct me if im wrong :P

    You might find adhesion's a problem... Most anodised finishes are pretty slippy. TBH your sprayer should be able to advise, if they have any idea what they're doing.
