Painted Key Fobs anyone?

Did some forum searching and it seems like no one's painted their key. It sounds like a silly thing at first, but my key is starting to get worn down. I think a nice color match would make it look fresh - or maybe a glossy black for the subtlety.

That'd be kinda cool.

There's also a small perk: if you ever valet your car, the fob design will be hard to forget

I have my key painted carbon black and monte carlo blue, the paint adds weight to it, and looks super nice.
