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.
Coloring your own pictures is a great way to get creative and to have the freedom to color any design that you want. Trace your favorite pictures or use your imagination to create cartoons, patterns, lettering, or still life drawings.
Search for “fantasy coloring pages” for pictures of dragons and more! If your child likes knights, dragons, princesses, and castles, they’ll probably enjoy coloring images of fantasy creatures.
Choose the target location and type in a name for the picture. For example, call it something like “Santa Claus coloring picture.”
All you need to do is conduct an online search for the type of pages your child likes, then print them out with a few simple steps.
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.
