Color trouble with making new rigs from base rig.

I’m trying to make a rig using a rig I previously made as a base. But when the 2 rigs are in a scene at the same time, the new rig inherits the colors of the original rig.
For example, if I duplicate the original rig and give it a new skin color, if I insert the original rig into the scene, Rig #2 will automatically change to the skin color of Rig #1. Is there a way I can make all the colors of the new rig “independent” so this doesn’t happen?


You could have look at Harmony’s “Recolour Drawings” feature.
It was made to resolve this problem.
