I have a customer that have a certain color blank. We've agreed on color I seem to remember something about you can paint with krylon spray paint. Can any you help me?

You can do this many ways. I would mention, however, that altering the bland finish/color typically will void any warranty. You may want to consider sourcing a blank that is already offered in the customer's choice.

Painting the blank will slow it down a little and take away from the sensitivity. The most sensitive a blank can be is no coating and just finish sanded. Don't hurt the blanks feelings, don't paint it. It will never be the same.
