We've got no information that will help us make a diagnosis. As AE gets more complicated and has to run on more & more OS's, CPU's and cards, it's tougher to track down a simple answer.
Could you please answer the questions you'll find here?
And a screen shot of your project wouldn't hurt, either.

Effect --> Color Correction --> Tint (or Tritone). and yes, as Dave said, it would help to have more info.
I've tried the tint effect before answering to the questions, and it worked!
Thank you very much for your answers!
I am guessing that the paint layer is set to a blend mode of screen and that you want to leave the background gray and color the paint.
You've got 2 options. The first is to use Effect>Channel>SetMatte to create an alpha channel for your paint splatter layer from the luminance values. Next add Effect>Channel>Remove Color Matting. Now add Effect>Color Correction>Tint and map White to your color. Adjust your blend mode normal or Alpha Add then to bring out the color. A blend mode of overlay would help bring out the underlying texture.
The second would be to .... Come to think of it, the first option should work just fine.
If you're on an earlier version of AE you could use Unmult to generate the alpha chennel...
I've tried with your way but it doesn't work perfectly because of the alpha inverted track matte (the text). But thanks for showing me a new effect! The tint effect proposed by Mylenium works properly
Pre-compose.... It will work just fine there and give you some edge control. A screenshot would have pointed you to a solution sooner.
