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.
Select your coloring utensils. Popular options include colored pencils, colored pens (e.g. Sharpie brand fine point markers), or art markers (Artist’s Loft Triangle Markers are a good cheap option, while Copic markers are a popular higher-end product).
When using on loose sheets of paper, you may want to cover your work surface in newspaper depending on the coloring utensils you’ve chosen (markers may bleed through your paper and leave behind marks).
Coloring books are inexpensive and they can be purchased from bookstores, department stores, or online. There is a wide variety of themes to choose from depending on your interests including comics, movies, nature, and animals.
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.
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.
