Just a follow up to one of the previous replies which suggested using  
ParametricPlot3D with a fourth argument specifying the color function 
for each pair of parameter values. The plots look a bit like the 
surfaces Alfred Gray used to draw with the color indicating the Gaussian 
curvature. You can find examples and code in Gray's book.
