System.Windows.Controls.Button vs System.Windows.Forms.Button

Using a Button control, I tried to reset its colour ("color" to those of you
on the other side of the pond). I tried to use the BackColor attribute - but
that is in System.Windows.Forms.Button.
When I add "using System.Windows.Forms" I get an ambiguous usage error,
seeing as I am also "using System.Windows.Controls".

I thought it would be hoping too much to cast from
System.Windows.Controls.Button to System.Windows.Controls.Button or even cast
back to a UIElement and then to System.Windows.Controls.Button seeing as that
is not its base class.
Any ideas?

I might as well answer my own question:

b.Background = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.Red;

Don't want to use System.Drawing.Brush, so either exlipicitly route it, or
"using System.Windows.Media.Brushes.
