If one were to paint a BGE Brown, permanently, what would be the best method?

This is not my EGG
I am not painting my EGG
I love my EGG Green

Some people are strange like that...
Any recommendations?

    I would guess to have it powder coated, 1000 times stronger than paint it doent chip or crack, my 2 cents

    can you powder coat it if it's not metal?

    a guy here used gold engine paint. probably not the color you were thinking. grill dome ceramics are painted with high temp enamels. problem would be maybe getting it to stick to glass, which is essentially what the glaze is.

    maybe the guy that went gold will post his pic and let us know how tenacious the hold is after the past few months. it ain't the temps that will kill you, i think it's the potential peeling from the smooth glaze.

    you could probably etch it with acid to roughen the surface. waste of time. go green
