Printing out coloring pages from the internet is the best way to get multiple copies of the same picture, as you don`t need to buy duplicates of the same book. This can be useful if you have children or are hosting a kid s birthday party.
Example: if you want to create the appearance of shadow, try using a deeper blue (or red, or yellow, etc.) to create darker areas and a lighter blue for highlighted areas. This method can work with pencils, pens and markers.
If you think your utensils could smudge, either color the center of your picture first and work your way outwards, or to start at the top of your page and work your way down.
Color however you feel is best. You can experiment with different designs, colors, and patterns, or keep it simple depending on what works for you.
While coloring is usually regarded as a solitary activity, there are plenty of coloring groups available where like-minded people share ideas, techniques, and support. Use social media to find a coloring group to join or ask at your local art club or library. If you want a darker color, try applying multiple layers.
Coloring books are a great option to pick if you don’t want to create your own drawings or if you want to color a lot.
