MMM!!! Isuppose you could as long as the paint is non toxic plus it is not going to flake off.
I would advise though, once it dries properly to keep it underwater for about a week changing the water daily before placing it in your tank.
You can get non toxic paints from hobby shops,, but can't guarantee what chemicals there may be, hence the soaking method.
I'ts up to you, but the price of new ornaments might be cheaper than the paint.
