Bad idea

Dip the whole thing in black paint or tar.
It won't fly anymore, but it will look cool on the shelf.

Worst idea ever. Your props will become unbalanced and you will get a lot of micro-vibrations on your drone.
If you want black props, get obsidian props as I did.

But you can check them with a prop balancer, sand a little off, to rebalance them.
Weigh them, add a little scotch tape.

Actually, I'm leaving mine OEM... No hassle.

Rather than scotch tape I use a drop or two of clear nail polish. It works well. I prefer OEM also.

Where does a single guy, me, get clear nail polish?

Would I have to buy it? Haha ok.

Looks awesome, does it still fly OK. Did you disassemble the Phantom to paint it.

It is the "Special Edition" Black P4 that Best Buy was offering last year.   I just had to add the decals.

I agree. There's discussion of a firmware issue that's causing motor shake and creating stress cracks in airframes. I can't imagine adding unbalanced paint to props not having a bad result.

I had been planning on doing a custom black/florescent green Phantom for a bit so I already had them on hand when the Special Edition P4 was released.  The stripes came from uavstickers.com.  The are just standard P3 decals so you can get them anyway in lots of colors.  The lettering decals came from diylettering.com.  They are made custom sized & available in loads of fonts & colors.  Very inexpensive too.

Still looks impressive. Are you working on any thing special at the moment with regard to planning for flight missions with Litchi?
