Decide what colors you are going to use. For example, you might want to only use cool colors (blues, purples, and dark greens) or only use warm colors (reds, oranges, yellows, and light greens). Or, you might prefer to use all of the colors of the rainbow in your picture. Regardless of the colors you choose, having a rough idea of how you’d like your completed piece to look can help you create a picture you’re satisfied with.
I like to lightly color the dominate color first and leave a bit of paper exposed for the wax of the second color to cling to. In the liver I colored (below), I started by coloring a layer of red, then I colored some brown on top. Then I colored more red over the top. I find this kind of layering to be really fun! There you have it! Share these tips with your students and all they’re coloring will be beautiful! These are also great tips for coloring with erasable colored pencils!
If there are some areas you want to accent, you can press a little harder on the crayon and end up with a darker, more intense color. This is another good reason to color lightly for full coverage. For example, in this picture of the heart below, I pressed harder when tracing the lines within the heart and in the vein and artery openings. I did the same thing when coloring the muscles and the brain.
