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.
Select your coloring utensils. Crayons and water-based markers are both great for kids. Gel pens are another fun option.
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.
You are not necessarily limited to actual coloring books. Tons of printable coloring pages are available online and many of them are free.
Regardless of the type of tool that you choose, look for a set that has a wide variety of different colors so that you can experiment with different techniques such as shading.
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).
