If you think your utensils could cause unwanted smudging, it can be helpful either to 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. If you aren’t worried about smudging, begin coloring wherever you’d like.
When using coloring books, you can use your lap as a coloring surface if you’d like to draw while in bed on the couch, for example. You may still find it easier to have a more flat and solid surface to work on, though.
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.
Felt markers, crayons, colored pens, and colored pencils are all ideal coloring tools for kids to use.
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 (permanent markers, for example, may bleed through your paper and leave stains).
Coloring is a great activity that can be enjoyed by children and adults alike. It’s relaxing, inexpensive, and an ideal way to get creative without needing many supplies. To begin coloring, choose what you want to color and the tools that you want to use.
