I saw some brush on caliper paint at my local Advanced Auto Parts store recently.
I believe it was a Duplicolor product
I was told by one of the guys that work there that the brush on stuff doesn't have a very good finish, even when done properly. He tried it and ended up stripping it off and spray painting. It didn't fill the porous alum or cast metal calipers well and generally looked like crap when it dried.
If you Google "Caliper Paint" you'll find options.

also Google POR-15, which is a rustproof hi temp coating quite usable for caliper paint.

Just looked at their site.
They make specific kit for calipers as well as many other applications.

i've used the duplicolor SPRAY caliper paint many times, with great success. it last quite awhile, is about as user friendly as a rattle can can get (very hard to get runs with it), and has a nice finish.
make sure you let it fully cure for 24+hrs before bolting anything up or it can smudge.
never tried the can stuff. cans cost $7 and the box is like twice that for the same coverage.
