Painted Spear Shaft

Hi,

Is there any evidence in manuscripts that spear shaft may have been painted to the heraldic colour of the lord? I'm interested primarily in 13th century but any medieval sub-period is also interesting.

It's frequent in reenactor circles but is it a reenactorism?

Thanks,
David.
