Sand it down a little, apply 2-3 coats of paint, then put on a couple of clear coat layers.

two layers of primer, two layers of color 4 layers of clear. works good but make shure you let each layer dry compleatly otherwise it will feel sticky and soft.

This came directly from newbies uber faqs

Q: How do I paint my marker?
A: This is courtsy of UT.
So you wanna paint your marker....

Materials:
1.Steel Wool (optional)
2. Primer
3. Spray Paint
4. Clear Coat
5. Dermal (optional)
6. Tape (optional)

1. Field Strip your marker, take everything out so you just have your receiver halves.
2. Use either a dermal or steel wool to strip off all the paint off your marker (yes the stock tippmann black or silver paint) be sure to get UNDER the marker and the BACK of the marker (these are spots I almost missed)
3. Wipe down your marker with a Wet Cloth to make sure you get all the debris off of it, and to see if you missed any spot where some paint might still be.
4. Tape off your internals so no paint will get on the inside, cover all the holes and everything (this step is optional)
5. Spray about 3-4 LIGHT coats of primer. Let dry. Go back and see if you missed a spot and to be sure both receivers are completely covered with the primer.
6. Spray the spray paint on the marker, about 3-4 coats and let dry. Just like doing the primer but colored. Make sure you got every where on the marker. Make sure the coats are Light and smooth on both receiver halves… let dry
7. Now, Spray both receivers halves with some clear coat, make sure you cover the entire marker. Make the coats light and quick. This should make your marker look a little “shiny” and “smooth”… let dry
8. If your internals were taped off then they should look fine on the inside. If they don’t or you didn’t tape them off then get out your steel wool (EXTRA fine steel wool) or dermal and polish up your internals or just polish it up so the paint, primer or clear coat is gone.
9. Put your newly painted marker together
10. Show off
