Choose a surface to color on. If you are using a loose leaf coloring page you will want to find a hard surface to work on, while coloring books allow you more flexibility. When using on loose sheets of paper, you may want to cover your work surface in newspaper depending on the coloring utensils you’ve chosen (permanent markers, for example, may bleed through your paper and leave stains). When using coloring books, you can use your lap as a coloring surface if you’d like to draw while in bed on the couch, for example.
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!
Use varying amounts of pressure to create the illusion of shadows. This technique, referred to as shading, adds depth and dimension to your picture. Simply vary the amount of pressure that you are apply with your coloring utensil depending on how light or dark you’d like a given area to be. Pressure shading is easiest to do with pencil. While shading is completely optional, creating depth or shadows in your picture can make it appear more realistic and detailed.
