How do I add an extra thread colour to one single object

How do I edit an object to add an extra thread colour to one single object?
My design is a sketch design of a dog with only 3 colours in total but I want to make it 4 colours by adding black for the nose and eyes.
In the Colour Object list, I need to change part of 1 object so that it will stitch out as... white, then black, then white.
Break apart is greyed out.
I can find the stitch number in the Stitch List so do I have to: add a stop, then add 3 empty jumps and then add colour change?
If I have to follow these steps which stitch number do I add them to so there is not a gap in the stitch-out?
I have a Husqvarna Designer Diamond Royale machine and am using Tajima machine format in Wilcom ES4.2 software.
In the Tajima format it states that a stop is interpreted as 3 jumps.

Hi there,

It would be really useful to see an image of your color object list.

I'm guessing you are opening a .DST? If this is the case, it may be opening without Object Recognition on. As a result, you may not be getting individual objects.

If it is a .DST, go to File > Open > Select Tajima DST, then click the 'Options' button in the Open Dialog. Ensure "Objects / Outlines" is ticked on. This will open it into objects.

Then, in the object color list you should be able to select the objects you want to change them to the color you want.

Let me know if that helps :)

Thank you for replying so quickly.
It is a DST file and I did open it with the objects/outlines and auto connectors ticked.
The problem is that the object I want to change has shading stitches, then the nose then more shading stitches all as one object and I can't break it down further. I am attaching a part of the Colour Object I am talking about.
