In some circumstances, like this one, you can color outside the lines because you’ll cut the piece out afterwards. This allows you to use large consistent strokes, as you can see in the red kidney above and on the right. This is an especially helpful tip for younger students who are coloring the organs in this My Body project. Just be sure not to use this tactic on the upper half of the heart in the My Body book because we won’t trim around all those veins and arteries.
You can start with a light layer of the color you want to use first. Then you can cover that with darker or lighter color to add life to your drawing, just like the wings on this butterfly. Then you can also create a texture effect. Just cover the drawing with a light stroke first then follow with rough, think strokes to serve as details / texture.
Keeping a consistent pressure with the crayon on the paper gives a uniform, pleasing look. If you’re pressing hard, your hands will get tired quickly, so I prefer to press lightly. Interestingly, being aware of how much pressure you’re applying seems to be really hard for younger children. It must be tied to motor skills in some way. It won’t hurt anything to tell them this tip, but if they aren’t implementing it, just let it go.
