Does anyone know of a product that is good at dying coral

I know that some of you might thing "what is this kid talking about?" But hear me out. So i live in hawaii, it is illegal to ship coral or live rock into the state and it is illegal to get it yourself ou of the ocean. So we buy already dead coral from stores, or "kind dead coral on the beach". So here is the question. Does anyone know of a product that is good at dying coral? Some coral that we can buy at the stores out here is already dyed colors like bright blue or red, green or yellow. It is very nice looking. But much more money then finding it yourself. So i want to try and dye some coral myself but i do not know of a product that is good at sticking to coral, that will not bleed once properly washed. And is especially not harmfell to the fish. Does anyone know of such a dye for coral?

Well Im almost positive that most colored fake corals are airbrushed. But you could try using food coloring.
