    different-colored or different color

    I am going to make up two sentences below.

    (1) These old different-colored (or different color) crayons are very rare and valuable.

    (2) The different-colored
    (or different color) designs of these purses were created by a very famous designer two years ago.

    I have seen both forms, "different-colored" and "different color", used on the internet. Which one is grammatically correct? Please help me. Thanks a lot.

    Re: different-colored or different color

    That comes under compound adjective which is hyphenated.
