Im assuming you have an E16, if so, its a rubber gasket, and i reused mine after cleaning it off. its best to replace it though. I'm sure you know this already but make sure your using a high-temp paint.

anycase of removing the cover... make sure you completely clean the gasket and where it sits on the head... if there oil it will loose oil there when it will be running... use thinner or degreaser !!

Hey rice rocket, I also have a GA16i and painted my valve cover. The gasket is made of rubber and very easy to replace. Bought the gasket from Canadian Tire. Here is a pic of my valve cover just to give you an idea.
