Colour refers to how a Neopet looks. Sometimes this just means a different hued coat being either mostly coated in a single color (in the case of colours like pink, orange, and the 4 basics), or with a color pattern (such as Skunk), but a colour can also completely transform a pet with a drastically different appearance (such as baby or Mutant), despite its name. Colours like maraquan or faerie change how a specific species looks by adding or subtracting various features.
As Neopets is a British website, United Kingdom English spelling and grammar is used for content on the website. Therefore, colour is the correct spelling, not color as it is spelled in the United States.
The following paintbrushes are on the site, but there is no corresponding colour: Glass Paint Brush, Stone Paint Brush, Lutari Paint Brush. Glass was removed, stone was replaced by relic, and the lutari brush was flat-out never set for anything.
