The first thing wrong is this plug is obviously by a water outlet (sink, tub or faucet).
By code it HAS to be a GFI plug. (Ground Fault Interrupter).
Second you DO NOT want to spray paint into a receptacle and you don't want to put anything in a live circuit to plug the holes WHILE you spray. This entire post is a no-no.
Cut the circuit, remove the plate cover, paint it and replace it. If the receptacle itself is the wrong color or not to your liking, WITH THE POWER CUT OFF COMPLETELY, REPLACE THE RECEPTACLE ITSELF. THEY ARE DIRT CHEAP AT THE HARDWARE STORE.
