Concentrate on the basics. If you are just starting to color, keep things simple. Forget shading, burnishing, details and texture _ start off by block coloring and concentrating on keeping between the lines. Block coloring is simply the practice of taking your colored pencil and filling an area completely and evenly with that color. Get to know your pencil, feel the weight of it and practice control. Simply filling those spaces with color whilst trying not to go beyond the lines will help you master control and prime you for learning more advanced techniques.
How to Crayon Tint. To crayon tint, your embroidery, start by transferring your design to the fabric. I recommend using a finely sharpened regular pencil, as it won't require water or be affected by ironing. Place the fabric in an embroidery hoop so the back of the fabric can press against a flat surface and color the design as desired.
