how can I colour a part of a block model via code? (the water in Cauldron model)


Recommended Posts

So I have extended (substitution alias) vanilla Cauldron so I can use it to produce a few things in my mod  ike various magical items, magical brews and even stuff like beer wort etc. 


The block is already extended and functioning. I'm just gonna add the mixing system in conjuction with a custom  IRecipe.


But I wanna be able to change the color of the water in the Cauldron to whatever colour I want based on what's in it.  I want ideally something like R G B  (0 - 15  maybe) as part of the custom recipe straight from Java.
