How to paint a pattern on non-planar face

I am new to SolidWorks and I could use some help figuring out how to paint something on a non-planar face. I am attaching a couple of picture which illustrate what I am trying to do, as well as my Part file, where I mocked up my intent by extruding a "Paint" surface from a plane tangent to my non-planar face.


The "paint" is the white stripe along the battery's perimeter.


B/c I extruded from a plane, you can see that the paint pattern around the USB ports is not flush with the surface. What's the correct way to do this?
