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.
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.
Select your coloring utensils. Popular options include colored pencils, colored pens (e.g. Sharpie brand fine point markers), or art markers (Artist’s Loft Triangle Markers are a good cheap option, while Copic markers are a popular higher-end product).
While coloring is traditionally done with crayon, use any tools that you feel comfortable with. You can try using fine-tip permanent markers, gel pencils, crayons, and different types of pencils such as watercolor.
Sites that feature fantasy coloring pages will also often feature images of mythological characters or some more realistic historical buildings and settings
Print the page in grayscale to make sure your child can color it. Printing in grayscale ensures that the image will be in black and white.
