Question how to color a light

hello to all. I was wondering if there are any ways to make a color gel for lights. thanks to anyone who can help. I was thinking of taking some transparent paint, and painting some plastic. Anyones input helps. or, if there is a way to get the led's bright enough. thanks

Movie people have been using colored gels since forever. You really want to make your own?

I know this is a DIY forum, but at some point it just becomes silly to make your own.
Rosco or Lee. And they will last more than 20 minutes.

Check out your local college theater or some AV company for scraps. You'll have a better idea of what you are dealing with.

OP, please elaborate on the LED part of the question. What are you trying to illuminate?
