Are you painting the original tablet or a customized enclosure.  I've yet to see a Wacom tablet that has a painted casing; usually they're molded in color.  The type of plastic or other material that the casing is made from will help to determine the best type of paint to use.

Some intuos boards are clear plastic with paint underneath.  There  are lots of post about removing the paint. Search.

ah, I see.  That must be on the newer ones to get a "modern" look.  If it's clear abs plastic, and you want to make it a single color, Krylon makes a spray paint called "Fusions" that's formulated for use on plastic.  This would work with solid colors or stenciled designs.  Another option is vinyl dye, which you can get at larger automotive supply places.  You should look into the proper techniques for using either one before you start, though.
