Use some html coding in the label's string.  Then set the font in the html.  
ex.
String lTxt=new String("<html><font color='blue'>Hey my font color is set!</font></html>");
JLabel lab=new JLabel(lTxt);

Then you can also use the font families, bold, italic and such that are available to html.  This also works great when you are setting the message in a JOptionPane and want to bring empahsis to certain lines or are working on formating with the <p> tag.
