You spent so much time on the piece of art — don’t throw it away! And it can be a nightmare to store kids art. Let’s make something fun with your coloring sheets instead!
While coloring is traditionally done with crayon, use any tools that you feel comfortable with. You can try using fine-tip permanent markers, gel pencils, crayons, and different types of pencils such as watercolor.
If you want to make sure that you get the colors right, get a scrap piece of paper and try drawing swatches with the same colored pencil using different amounts of pressure. You can use the swatches as a reference point to decide how much pressure you want to use while coloring.
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.
Regardless of the colors you choose, having a rough idea of how you’d like your completed piece to look can help you create a picture you’re satisfied with.
Color along the lines first and work your way in. Coloring along the edges of a distinct area first and then working your way work way in will help prevent you from coloring outside of the lines.
