Tips for new colourists

Here are some great simple tips for new colourists posted by Dancin Art Studio.

  • Buy books one at a time to see what ones you really like and what kind of artist styles.
  • Sharpen your pencil more than you think you need to.
  • Always test markers or gel pens on a page in the back of the book to check if the pages are going to bleed through or not.
  • Slip a piece of card stock or a couple pieces of paper behind your picture. This prevents dents in the next image and protects the next image against bleeding.
  • If you colour in public make sure to bring an extra book or some pages with you for when a friend sees you and wants to join.
  • Buy the biggest set of colours you can afford.This is cheaper than buying a box of 12 or 24 and than filling it in with singles.
  • Print out free pages to colour from different artists so you can decide rather you like their style or not.
  • And lastly, have fun and don’t be afraid to colour outside the lines— it’s ok!
