Coloring Tips and Techniques. First of all _ choose what coloring material you would like to use. There are lots of coloring materials to choose from like: crayons, colored pencils, markers, soft and oil pastels, and many more. It's your choice which media you'll be comfortable in.
Use good quality crayons (Crayola works well) for the best results. Making the fill color darker around the edges is a good technique for adding dimension. As you work, don't press too hard. It's better to add layers of color than to have too much color that you can't remove. Take care to color evenly and without causing color streaks. When you're finished, place a piece of scrap fabric over the coloring and iron the paper on a high setting. This will heat set the coloring and remove excess wax.
