I don't have a regular pair of scissors but the powerful plant trimmer will work fine. I'm also going to use a simple plastic straw.

plumbers putty would work also, and it comes in dark grey color.

Is there a way to paint the Sugru?

Not really. Sugru is a rubber when it hardens so it is still a little flexible. So most paint would chop off.

However Sugru comes in different colors. Check out their website to see what they offer.
