Will painting an overhead ground plane wire degrade its performance?

  I loosely placed a 20ga wire below a second level loop, under which a certain TMCC diesel was exhibiting classic signal loss symptoms.   The addition of this tiny wire made a marked improvement, and I’m planning on permanently installing it today.  

  I’d like to paint portions of the wire to blend in better with the upper level sub roadbed, mainly gray and/or black.  Will light painting noticeably affect the wire’s usefulness?  I suppose I could go buy black wire, but I like using everything I have without needless surpluses. 

Thanks

Tom
