Question How do I paint ball milled valve covers

I have a pair of ball milled designed, polished aluminum valve covers.
How do I paint the ball milled design so that it is clean around the polished background?
I do not want to have to re-polish the aluminum after I paint the design and then wipe off the surrounding area.
Any ideas, tips, tricks, type of paint, etc?
Jeff
