Hello,

The primary color actually doesn’t have anything to do with that. It’s just a transparent image that is overlaid and shows through to whatever you’ve setup for the background color. And the transparent image is a light grey or a black; this depends on if you’ve selected a dark or a light color for your background color.

To put a custom color here would be a CSS customization you’d need to make to the theme.

For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

/* If you selected a dark background color */
.body_text_light #footer_sub_content { ... }

/* If you selected a light background color */
.body_text_dark #footer_sub_content { ... }

Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.
