You can use something like color white,object to set an object to a fixed color, or the utility command util.cbag("object") (note the parentheses and quotes) to color the object by atom type and set the carbon atoms to green. There's "cbag" for "color by atom type, carbons green", "cbaw" for white carbons, "cbay" for yellow carbons and so on. Alternatively, you can use the color menu in the internal GUI.
