Both...
But to do your factory ones, Brembo says they should be powdercoated and then painted over that.

They are already powder coated from GM, so I just cleaned them really
good and then painted them with hi temp ceramic paint and then put a coat of hi temp clear w/ceramic on them. Then I found some Hi-Temp Brembo decals and added them. They look great.

and if you have a V6 car and want color matching brakes, there are a few different companies that make brake caliper paint. IMO the best is G2, you can get it the form of a kit with all you need to do a car, about $35. They have either brush on, or spray, which ever "trips your trigger" I did mine in Orange as my car is IOM, start to finish, it took about 3 hours. They came out great.

Just google or look up powdercoaters in the yellow pages for your area.
Ask a local body shop if they know of anyone. For powdercoating, you have to remove the calipers and remove all the components. They are heated to aprox 400 degrees when PCing and can be done in a variety of colors.
