Black any other colour will just show how small they are or look dirty all the time

Silver also isn't too bad on calipers, even when dirty they don't look like they were painted really.

I just use Hammerite paint with a brush on callipers, can stand heat and it's rust proofing, both painted before or after rust has got in.

If u can take them off and don't mind the wait then I would get then powder coated but if its a choice between brush paint or aerosol paint I would choose brush purely because u have to mask off loads with the can because of the amount of area it covers and also you are less likely to get runs with a brush and a can would take loads if layers because the cast tht the callipers ate made out of will just absorb the paint and you don't have to worry about brush marks because if u get calliper paint then it is self levelling and will smooth itself out
