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.
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.
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.
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.
Choose a surface to color on. If you are using a loose leaf coloring page you will want to find a hard surface to work on, while coloring books allow you more flexibility.
Coloring books are fun for all ages. Although coloring is not generally considered to be very difficult, there are a number of methods and tips that you can use to help make your experience more enjoyable and successful.
