I think you can get it in red.
Spray paint does not eat away at the foam. Normal spray-paint, anyway.
It does, as Angel mentioned, come off over time.
It also makes your darts wider, as I discovered, so they
a.) don't want to go into your barrels anymore
b.) shed paint everywhere when they do
c.) lose range and accuracy because their extra fatness and asymmetry due to uneven peeling of paint causing extra friction
In stock barrels, where the barrel/dart contact is short, and there's not much friction, it could work, but I've found that in all my modified guns, all that happens in the paint comes off and gums up the works. I have a little cup of bright-orange-painted darts that I never use leftover from when I tried painting them, because they're useless now.
You *could* put paint on just the end, and that wouldn't cause extra friction, but the paint would still come off over time.
Moral: Spray paint doesn't work, but for different reasons than you guessed.

I spray painted some stefans not too long ago and it worked alright, but the paint chipped off after 5-10 shots. Colored backer rod really is the way to go.

I take my stefans and line them up in between two long pices of wood with the weight end down and put a dot of bright orange on the back. It makes it easier to see when they land in the grass. Just don't get any paint on the sides cause it will mess up the darts in the barrel.
Painting the back end of your darts neon orange works pretty well, and although it does chip off over time, it takes a while to come off, and it doesn't seem to eat away at the foam.
You can poop in my toilet anytime champ.
