Decide what colors you are going to use. For example, you might want to only use cool colors (blues, purples, and dark greens) or only use warm colors (reds, oranges, yellows, and light greens). Or, you might prefer to use all of the colors of the rainbow in your picture.
Especially when using colored pencils, it’s very important to gradually darken the color using multiple layers. Begin with gentle pressure to create light layers and with each additional layer press down slightly more until the color reaches the desired tone.
There are so many fun things to do!
Open the image and select “print” to print out the coloring page. When you click on “print,” the computer will bring up a menu page allowing you to select a printer and choose how many copies of the image you’d like to print.
If you download and save several images at once, you won’t have to repeat the entire process the next time your child wants an image to color. You can just print one of the already-downloaded images.
Alternatively, an easy technique to try is crayon rubbings. Simply remove the paper from the crayon, lay it on its side, and rub it gently over the paper. This creates a gentle shade over the paper.
