Sure they can, your going to have to completely disassemble them then have them sandblasted then coated. Obviously you will need to make sure no coating get in where the piston rests and in the fluid passages

I am looking to make them stand out, I tried yellow paint but it seems to hold on to the brake dust..It seems Powder coating cleans up easier

We used to have them painted all the time when I worked in the braking industry.
Clean them completely, tape over the areas you don't want painted, and shoot them in what ever color you want. If you want to put a logo on them then use a good quality vinyl sticker and clear coat over it.
