If the bath is metal, a metalsmith or someone with metal working capability
could re-anodize the surface. Sculptors/artists often know how to do this
too, the guys with big blow torches and welding masks.
Otherwise the high temperature black paint may be the only
alternative. Be sure to have a spotlessly clean surface and maybe even
repolish with some fine grit paper before painting or the paint might start
peeling off onto those precious sections. A whole new artifact problem.
