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.
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.
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).
Find a surface to color on. If you are using a loose leaf coloring page you will need to find a hard surface to work on, while coloring books allow you more flexibility.
Choose the target location and type in a name for the picture. For example, call it something like “Santa Claus coloring picture.”
Especially when using colored pencils, it’s very important to gradually darken the color using multiple layers. Begin with gentle pressure to create light layers and with each additional layer press down slightly more until the color reaches the desired tone.
