Many people paint their calipers so that they look less 'tatty', its a very easy job to do.
Various paints and colours can be used, from just plain Hammerite paint to specialist brake painting kits.
A few tips though:
Avoid rushing this job as it can look bad very easily, make sure you clean the calipers very well first. I used some brake cleaner, then some warm soapy water with a hard toothbrush and finally a soft cloth and my finger. (but my brakes were painted yellow before so I had to apply some paint remover and gently remove all the old paint first).
I used just a standard paint but made sure I used a base coat, main coat and finally a few coats of clear lacquer to fend off the brake dust.
