Yes, an airbrush artist would be the best way to go about it. They have the experience / patience to apply spray appropriately, with control. A proper masking I'd imagine though to be the bulk of the labor.

..and an excellent way of testing the weather sealing!

I always had my chrome Leica M3 covered with black electrical tape, and I do the same with the white or silver lettering on my OMD - I leave the silver edges to the controls, though.
