For something very similar, I cut drinking straws into small sections and fitted them over the leds, on the open ends, I placed silver craft beads . The intent was to give the led a large viewing angle. I suppose if you used permanent marker on the straws the color would change.

You could also paint it with water colour or colour on the LED directly with a Sharpie for a more permanent option...hope this helps.

I think watercolor or sharpie would be too transparent. You'd need a much darker ink to affect the light much. You could likely use some sort of paint though, as long as it was a pretty thin coat.
