Painting Asphalt Shingles

I just did some roof maintenance by replacing a few shingles. Problem is I couldn't find shingles to match very closely in color.
I'm curious to know if I could paint them (new ones only) with a spray paint such as Rustoleum or whatever else someone might recommend.

It won't last...and could possibly harm the shingles. Of course you can do it...but since shingles normally have a sort of "speckled" appearance...painting them might also make them stand out in a different way.

You can tint the shingles by spraying/fogging on drastically reduced latex paint but I'm not sure you could tint a few shingles and expect them to match.

Applying a full coat of paint to shingles would more than likely ruin them.
