You wouldn't go and use paint, gotta use something in the actual surface course. The paint, aside from being slippery, like nick said, would also fad very quickly. It would have to be a dye in the actual material before it's laid on the ground.
Here's a little experiment, take food coloring (anything u want) mix up some concrete, pour in that coloring, and bam, you got yourself long lasting colored walkway, patio or what have you. (Neighbor did it in his garden, green paths to make it blend in).
Exactly. It would be hard to do with pavement, but if the roads are concrete, there are all kinds of coloring agents that can be mixed in before making the pour. Food coloring could work, sure, but there already is an established market for concrete and clay coloring. I would just get some of that stuff.

Ha, I hadn't looked into colored concrete, so I wasn't aware of that. Makes sense though, lots of concrete buildings now-a-days have interesting color combinations. My neighbor did that to his walkway nearly 20 years ago.... looks like I'm a little behind
