Different font colors in JTextPane

I'm inserting different lines into a JTextPane using the StyledDocument.insertString() and I am wondering how to make the different lines of text different colors. This should be fairly simple, any help is appreciated.

import java.awt.*;
import javax.swing.*;
import javax.swing.text.*;

public class MyTextPanel extends JPanel{
    JTextPane jtp = new JTextPane();

    public MyTextPanel(){
       super(new BorderLayout());
       this.add(jtp, BorderLayout.CENTER);
       StyledDocument sd = jtp.getStyledDocument();
       sd.insertString(sd.getLength(), "First Text\n", null);
       //color change code here
       sd.insertString(sd.getLength(), "Text in a different Color", null);
       //color change again
       sd.insertString(sd.getLength(), "Text in a third Color", null);
   }
}

}

}
