I don't think it is possible to change the color of a button this easy ... since a button color can be chosen system wide in display properties.
And a button also doesn't have a canvas so you cannot paint yourself on it.

You can create your own button class, publish color property and create custom Paint method. Look in sources:

COLORBUTTON COMPONENT VERSION 1.8

COPYRIGHT 1996 JONATHAN GRANT OF INFORMATION EXPRESSIONS

About
This is an enhancement of the standard component issued with Delphi32. Unlike the Delphi component however, this enhanced version gives you much more control over how the button looks on screen.
This release fixes a problem with the redrawing of disabled buttons makes the button respond to messages from the keyboard and accept the focus, as well as supporting accelerator keys too.
