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.
Start from the outside of a section and work your way towards the center as you color. Try to color in the same direction at all times if possible, so that the strokes look neat and tidy.
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).
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.
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.
No matter what colors you ultimately choose, having a rough idea of how you’d like your completed piece to look will help ensure that you are satisfied with your final product.
