Project Ideas from The Coloring Studio + A Coupon

The Coloring Studio ProjectsIt’s time to break out the box of crayons and embrace some good old-fashioned nostalgia. Coloring books are not only back in fashion again, but they are even topping the bestseller lists on Amazon and beyond. To celebrate our favorite pastime, we’ve gathered some projects together using The Coloring Studio’s pages. Turn your artwork into wrapping paper, art journal pages, cards, and more — because the real fun starts when it’s all colored in.

Dream Catcher Project by Sarah Donawerth

Dream Catcher Project by Sarah Donawerth

Coloring pages are the perfect starting place for mixed-media projects. This dream catcher uses feathers from a coloring page as the finishing touch. Incorporating mixed-media elements can also add a sophisticated style to your coloring pages. These feathers use glitter glue and texture paste to make them stand out.

Unique Coloring Tools

We all love our trusty crayons and colored pencils, but sometimes we need to branch out to something new. Here are recommendations to try when you’re ready to experiment in your coloring book:

1. Watercolor pencils

Watercolor Pencils

This is a great place to start when you are looking to experiment with your coloring tools. Just color in your design as before, and use a water brush to blend your colors for a smooth, watercolor finish that is sure to impress.

2. Brush Pens

Brush Pens

When you’re looking for something a little more exciting than markers, try a brush pen. You’ll get a smooth line of beautiful ink and it is by far a more exciting experience (in my humble opinion) than using ordinary markers.

3. Gelatos

Gelatos

We can’t say enough good things about gelatos. You can blend them with a makeup sponge for a pastel look, or use a water brush to create a watercolor effect. You can also use a knife to flake pieces of gelatos onto the page and spritz with water for a fun, confetti look. These are also great tools for large areas and can be used with so many different techniques that you’ll never get bored.

4. Texture Paste

Texture Paste

Transform your coloring pages with a little texture paste and create a three-dimensional work of art. Texture paste can be used with stencils to add interest to the background, or you can add touches with a palette knife for extra detail. Just imagine a colored page of a cupcake with what looks like real frosting!

5. Ken Oliver’s Color Bursts

Ken Oliver's Color Bursts

These ultra-fine watercolor powders can be sprinkled onto the coloring page, then spritzed with water for interesting effects. Fill the page with bright colors and create effortless artwork.
