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!
If you are using pencils, be sure to sharpen them before you begin your coloring project, as this will allow you to have more precision in your coloring.
For darker areas, draw these lines closer together. To create highlights, leave more space between each line, or don’t draw any lines at all.
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.
If you make a mistake while coloring using an app, it is much easier to remove than coloring with pencils or markers on paper.
Choose the best place to begin coloring. Some drawing utensils (such as gel pens, colored pens, or markers) are more likely to smear than others.
