1] Create a directory in pub/ called myicons/

2] create sub-directories named after the colors. So you now have:

3] Put the icons in the appropriate color directory.

4] Create a css file myicons.css containing a css class, with a link to 
the image -- note the url does not need to contain a path since you put 
the css file in the same directory as the images. You probably want a 
few more styling attributes as well:
   .myicon { background-image: url(myicon.gif); }

5] place a copy of the same css file (no changes needed) into each color 

6] in config.php load the css file based on color:

   $HTMLHeaderFmt['myicons'] = "<link rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' 
href='$PubDirUrl/myicons/" .(empty($SkinColor) ?'green' :$SkinColor) 
."/myicons.css' media='screen' />\n";

7] Use the class 'myicons' on whatever element you want to apply the 
image styling to.
