Rotor agilis graphics removal?

Is it possible to remove the graphics from my rotor agilis crankset? I read that they are not painted? Did a search on this forum but could not find an answer. Sorry if there is already another topic...

The black "paint" is anodized, but I have no idea about the white. If it is painted, then you can remove it.

The graphics are not painted on but laser etched or CNCed into the crank arm surface.
One would have to apply paint to cover these naked areas.

You'll have to get it stripped then re-anodized full black (or any other colour). It will not get rid of the etching but will cover up the white graphics. You may end up with "ghost" Rotor graphics. Could look cool.

Or have it powder-coated black. That should cover any etching entirely.

Thanks for the answers, maybe i'll just replace it by new red and keep it this way for my cross bike...
