I've colored my stamens before. Both with the petal dust and with the paste/gel(mixed with alcohol) color and both worked. However I had cotton stamens, not wire ones. I have colored my wires before though, I covered the wire in a very thin white floral tape and then colored like above. Petal dust gives a pale color, and the painted gel gives a darker color.
