If you want fun, "Colors/Map/Palette map", or "Colors/Map/Gradient map"

Can you give me some steps to do this because that doesnt work. Colors/Map/Palette was cool though lol

- add a transparent layer over it
- put this layer in "color" mode using the layer mode selector at top of Layers list:

- paint on that new layer:
