I don't know what the forms are made of. If they can stand exposure to petroleum products use kerosene or Diesel fuel. Apply it they let the forms drain a while. The residue will be enough to allow the concrete to release.

I have not done it, but if it is anything like stamped concrete, there is a color/releasing agent (powder) that you apply to the forms before you pour the concrete. You can also add color to the concrete.

Here is a video I found: How to make stone veneer accent colors from concrete molds. StoneCasterStudio.com - YouTube I suggest wearing gloves.
