Tips, Tricks, and Recommendations
Now, let’s talk about some tips for successful coloring.
- Before you get started, make sure to choose a well-lit and comfortable space to work in. It’s also important to select appropriate coloring pages and supplies, including the right coloring tools and paper.
- Since our coloring pages are very high quality, you’ll be able to print them on any surface your printer supports. You can use thicker paper as well as cardstock or even watercolor paper. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can also print on paper that supports gouache or acrylic paint.
- We don’t advise you to paint with wet mediums (watercolors, gouache, inks) if you’re printing with an inkjet printer since the inks are dye-based and not resistant to water; on the other side, if you have a laser printer, then you’ll have nothing to worry about.
Take your time and remember to breathe and relax while you color – this is supposed to be a fun and therapeutic activity!
Now, let’s talk colors!
- Pastel colors: A soft and gentle color palette, pastel colors work well for flower coloring pages. Think light pinks, purples, blues, and greens, along with subtle yellows and oranges.
- For a more vibrant and eye-catching look, consider using bright and bold colors like hot pink, orange, and electric blue. These colors are great for creating contrast and making your flowers pop.
- If you prefer a more minimalist, elegant look, consider using a monochromatic color scheme. This involves using different shades of the same color, such as different shades of pink or blue. You can combine two contrasting or complementary schemes, like pinks and greens or blues and oranges.
- Warm colors like red, orange, and yellow are great for creating a cozy and inviting feel. These colors are perfect for flower coloring pages that feature sunflowers, poppies, and other warm-hued blooms.
- Cool colors like blue, green, and purple can create a calming and soothing effect. These colors work well for coloring pages featuring delicate flowers like lavenders.
- Analogous colors: Analogous colors are those that are adjacent to each other on the color wheel, such as yellow-green, green, and blue-green. This color scheme creates a harmonious and cohesive look, making it great for coloring pages with lots of small flowers.
- When it comes to choosing the right materials, there are a variety of options to consider. Colored pencils and markers are great for traditional coloring and fine detail work, while watercolor pencils allow for a more fluid and blended look. If you’re feeling adventurous, try using markers and gel pens to add bold and vibrant colors to your pages!
When it comes to choosing the right materials, there are a variety of options to consider, that’s why we’ve prepared a selection of recommended materials so you can enjoy your coloring journey even more. Although many say that having better supplies won’t make you a better artist, it for sure can improve your experience a lot!
Good art supplies will take away most of the frustration and lack of control bad art supplies have and will make your work look much better, with brighter, more intense colors, will last more, and are a delight to use.
Here is a list of recommended materials and brands:
Everybody knows that there is nothing better than Prismacolor, they have the softest coloring pencils, the most intense pigments, and the highest quality, however, they are quite expensive as well. Because of that, we’ve prepared two alternatives that will give you the best results without hurting your pockets as professional colored pencils would.
Paper for Coloring
You don’t need special paper for coloring, however the experience of coloring on paper that is more resistant, that has texture or that grand the pigments better is something I suggest you try. There are many types of paper for art, each one made with a specific medium in mind, however, there is also an “all-in-one” paper where you can try different mediums and experiment all you want without worrying. These two brands have great quality and are not as expensive as other professional brands. Remember, if you are going to use any kind of “wet” medium, make sure you’re printing with a laser printer.
Coloring on top of white paper can affect how our brain perceives values and colors, so it’s always recommended to try toned paper. The gray tones on the paper will give your brain a base that is neutral and will force it to work with colors differently. You will learn about value and your coloring pages will look amazing with a darker background.
We couldn’t forget about all the accessories you need to bring your coloring to the next level! You don’t have to buy them all, of course, however, we do recommend you get the color blender and the electric eraser or the electric sharpener if you don’t have a good sharpener at home.
Colored pencils and markers are great for traditional coloring and fine detail work, while watercolor pencils allow for a more fluid and blended look. If you’re feeling adventurous, try using markers and gel pens to add bold and vibrant colors to your pages.
