Princesses have long captured the hearts and minds of people around the world with their tales of beauty, grace, and courage. They are often portrayed as strong and independent individuals who are not afraid to stand up for what they believe in and, at the same time, inspire others to do the same.
Princesses also represent hope and perseverance as they represent beauty, elegance, and kindness while they fight to reach their goals and objectives. Additionally, they can be symbols of generosity and compassion, using their influence and resources to help those in need.
This selection of Princess-themed coloring pages hopes to bring all these amazing qualities and represent the beauty and grace of princesses. You can find coloring pages of all difficulties for both children and adults, so get your art materials ready and start coloring!
Now, let’s talk about some tips for a stress-free coloring experience.
- 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 relax and have fun while you color – this is supposed to be a fun and therapeutic activity, so don’t stress and enjoy!
Now, let’s talk colors!
When it comes to coloring schemes for princesses, there are many different options depending on the style and theme you want to convey. Here are some suggestions and ideas for you to follow.
- Pink and gold are a classic color scheme for princesses and can create a soft and romantic look. Use shades of pink ranging from pale blush to deep magenta, and add gold accents for a touch of luxury.
- For a more bold and regal look, try a jewel-tone color scheme. Deep shades of emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, and amethyst purple can create a rich and luxurious color palette that contrasts with any skin color.
- Soft, muted pastel colors like lavender, mint green, and baby blue make a dreamy and romantic princess look. You can mix and match different pastel shades to create a cohesive color scheme.
- Choose one color and use different shades and tones of that color to create a monochromatic color scheme. For example, shades of pink ranging from pale blush to deep fuchsia can create a stunning and cohesive princess look.
- Silver and blue create a cool and elegant color scheme that is perfect for a winter princess theme. Use shades of blue ranging from pale icy blue to deep navy, and add silver accents for a touch of sparkle.
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.
And remember, with the right color palettes and supplies; you can bring your coloring pages to life. So grab your coloring tools and get started today!
