Every surface needs to be prepped before you apply any kind of paint so if you didn't prep the surface (aka sand it down or at least clean the surface from dirt and/or brake dust deposits), it will never stick.

I found these http://www.xrcbrakes.com/ while I was at last month's San Mateo Hot Import Nights. I checked out the website and it came out to about 200+bucks per pair paint included.

Damn those those look nice, if they are giving you a set of calipers then the price is not that bad at all.
