How to change the font color and size when using FontSelector?

I am using font selector to process the String and this works fine unless there are 2 strings

I am using iText (Java) to write PDF which may contain Chinese characters. So I am using font selector to process the String and this works fine.

Now the problem is that if there are 2 strings

String str1 = "Hello Test1";
String str2 = "Hello Test2";
I need to write str1 witch Font Color = Blue and size = 10, whereas str2 with Font Color = Gray and size = 25.

I am not able to figure out how to achieve this using FontSelector.

Here you have a code snippet that adds the Times Roman text in Blue and the Chinese text in Red:

FontSelector selector = new FontSelector();
Font f1 = FontFactory.getFont(FontFactory.TIMES_ROMAN, 12);
f1.setColor(BaseColor.BLUE);
Font f2 = FontFactory.getFont("MSung-Light",
        "UniCNS-UCS2-H", BaseFont.NOT_EMBEDDED);
f2.setColor(BaseColor.RED);
selector.addFont(f1);
selector.addFont(f2);
Phrase ph = selector.process(TEXT);

In your case you need two FontSelectors.

FontSelector selector1 = new FontSelector();
Font f1 = FontFactory.getFont(FontFactory.TIMES_ROMAN, 12);
f1.setColor(BaseColor.BLUE);
selector1.addFont(f1);
Phrase ph = selector.process(str1);
FontSelector selector2 = new FontSelector();
Font f2 = FontFactory.getFont(FontFactory.TIMES_ROMAN, 12);
f2.setColor(BaseColor.GRAY);
selector2.addFont(f2);
Phrase ph = selector.process(str2);
