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.
If you are using pencils, be sure to sharpen them before you begin your coloring project, as this will allow you to have more precision in your coloring.
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.
Color along the lines first and work your way in. Coloring along the edges of a distinct area first and then working your way work way in will help prevent you from coloring outside of the lines.
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.
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).
