I've read a lot about faces over the years, but there's something that
I just don't get: how do I prepare some text which is colored in a
specific way?

E.g., suppose I have the following text in my Emacs buffer (say, the
*Scratch* buffer):
  Here is some sample text colored in different ways

How can I make "Here is" red, "some sample" blue, "text" green,
"colored in" red, and "different ways" blue ?

The specific colors aren't important; an example using commonly
available faces such as:

would be fine too.

Global Bindings Starting With M-g:
key             binding
---             -------

M-g d           facemenu-set-default
M-g b           facemenu-set-bold
M-g i           facemenu-set-italic
M-g l           facemenu-set-bold-italic
M-g u           facemenu-set-underline
M-g o           facemenu-set-face

And see the "Formatted Text" and "Format Colors" nodes of the Emacs manual.
