Automating changing folder color

Is there a way to automate changing folder color using Keyboard Maestro?

The manual steps are as follows:

  1. First, open the folder that you want to change the color of.
  2. Right-click on the folder and select "Get Info" from the context menu.
  3. In the Info window that appears, click on the folder icon at the top-left corner of the window.
  4. From the menu bar, click on "Edit" and select "Copy" to copy the folder icon.
  5. Open the Preview app on your Mac and select "New from Clipboard" from the "File" menu.
  6. From the menu bar, select "Tools" and then "Adjust Color."
  7. In the Adjust Color window, use the sliders to adjust the color of the folder icon as desired.
  8. Once you're happy with the color, click on "File" and select "Save."
