If you have access to a ceramic shop, you can use what's called an
underglaze, which is a coloring that goes in under a clear glaze.  They even
make a red underglaze that is now food safe.  There are several other colors
available as well, but the underglaze is easier to control for precise
shaping.  An average set of dishes (large plate, small plate, and bowl) will
run about 20.00 after buying and having fired twice.  The first is after
cleaning and underglaze are applied, and the second is for the clear or
colored (not red) glazes.  Red glazes usually take a lower temperature
firing.  The reason most red glazes are not food safe, is they are more
prone to the spider web cracking and can crack off in food.
