Choose the best place to begin coloring. Some drawing utensils (such as gel pens or markers) are more likely to smear than others.
Search for “fantasy coloring pages” for pictures of dragons and more! If your child likes knights, dragons, princesses, and castles, they’ll probably enjoy coloring images of fantasy creatures.
Coloring books are fun for all ages. Although coloring is not generally considered to be very difficult, there are a number of methods and tips that you can use to help make your experience more enjoyable and successful.
Try shading by using a combination of light and dark tones to show where the aspects of your drawings that are highlighted. You can also try cross hatching by adding intersecting lines to create dimension.
Look for “coloring pages with animals” for giraffes, elephants, or zebras. Kids can either recreate the colors and patterns of animals they’ve seen at a zoo, or they can imaginatively think up new shades and patterns to color the animals.
Decide on a color scheme. You might, for example, choose to only use cool colors (blues, purples, and dark greens) or only use warm colors (reds, oranges, yellows, and light greens) for your project, or you may choose to mix many different hues together.
