How do I sync character colors?

I'm trying to have a system where a player joins a room, picks a color, and their character is instantiated as that color.
//

I set the color as a Player Custom Property in SetCustomCharacter(), and then I'm trying to get a way to link the player prefab to the Photon player. Right now, I'm trying to set the color like this:
//

The playerModel.GetComponent<> ... .ActorNumber doesn't work because it's only locally setting the ownerID, and for everyone else it returns 0. What is the correct way to do something like this?

There are plenty of ways to get this working.
I would recommend one of those two:
a) If the players select the color before instantiating the character (and the color never changes afterwards), you can send some "Instantiation Data" with the Instantiate. A script on the prefab should read this and apply the color.
b) Store the color as a Custom Property of each player. Remote clients can read each player's color property and apply it.
