The act of painting a clear gun could be construed as manufacturing a replica. They came into Canada legally as clear, with a judgemnet rendered by the CBSA and CFC based on the fact that they were clear. So, by painting the gun, you would be altering it's rather narrowly defined slot in the great game of guns in Canada.
Are you likely to get arrested for it? No. But if you were a twit playing with it in the park with your buddies, or tried to hold up a gas station with it, look out.
