Choose the best place to begin coloring. Some drawing utensils (such as gel pens or markers) are more likely to smear than others.
Alternatively, an easy technique to try is crayon rubbings. Simply remove the paper from the crayon, lay it on its side, and rub it gently over the paper. This creates a gentle shade over the paper.

Here is a list of various things to do with finished coloring pages, as well as crafts with blank coloring pages. You can also use coloring pages as a template to create beautiful pieces of art for your home.
