The SEMs Paint has the right colors (use their chart to match) and unless you damage the part should stay on with out a problem.
I use the DuPont Plastic Adhesion Promoter and have had no problems.
I use the same paint on metal but use the Metal Etching Primer first.

As far as a “Dye”, I am not sure that would even work. Dyes usually need to be absorbed to adhere but I don’t think plastic will absorb anything, maybe one of the plastic paints ?

Luck on your quest.

I think it's called RIT dye? Something like that. But RC car people use it to dye wheels and other parts.
