This is what I'm doing: From the Ribbon, Manage>Materials>Masonry-Brick>Duplicate>Rename>Library>Masonry>Brick>Running-Red>Make it a Property Set>Generic>Colour, Select Colour, OK. Then I edit the wall type to make sure the exterior finish layer is the named the same as the newly created brick colour. And the brick colour doesn't change in my model. What am I doing wrong? Or is it even possible to do it this way - I'm thinking that I'd have to duplicate the material image file and then adjust the colour in Photoshop. But then why would Revit provide a colour picker tool.

If you are using a brick material and have the "use render appearance" checked in the material editor under shading properties then it will use the image file to create the color.  If you just want the color changed uncheck the box and change the color to what you would like however when you render it will still use the image file and not the shading color you specified.  You would need to find an image of what material and color you want and replace the existing material with the new one.

I had a feeling that would be the case. Though I'm still wondering why Revit would have a colour picker above the material in the Appearance tab as it seems to serve no purpose VS the one in the Graphics tab which, as you mentioned, you could use to create a special colour scheme for Shaded mode...
