Part Swapping
In the manufacturing process the parts for a trick can be molded in one color like white and then another set of the parts can be molded in a contrasting color like red. When the trick is assembled, the parts colors are mixed and matched to get a more interesting looking prop. Crossroads is a good example of this. There are Crossroads that are primarily red with white highlights and some that are white with red highlights.
