Rite Dye is an excellent color solution if you want a single color. Half a package of powdered dye can color many, many parts. Just get some water up to a very gentle boil, add the powder, stir, add the parts, stir occasionally, and let simmer for no more than 20 minutes. The other colors might have to be painted. The dye is available in any department store with the laundry detergents.
