So, brothers and sisters: what exactly IS silicone pigment?

Im working with plast gel 10, and i want to colour it (first with a mix in pigment, maybe later with paint). silicone itself is costly, especially with postage, and the paints just crank up the price.

So i just want to know, how hard can it be? Will acrylic work? Food colouring?Dye? (the last two work fine in foam latex, for instance.) I dont know the ingredients of the official pigments, but surely i done need to spend a tenner on each colour?

Anyone?
