Create Interesting Backgrounds for Coloring Pages

1. Vintage effect
Use a yellow ochre watercolor pencil and working dry on dry, add color to the paper first. Then rub bronze gilder's paste over certain parts of the colored area to create a vintage effect. This technique works well for floral coloring pages.

2. Softening colors with Vaseline
Use watercolor pencils and working dry on dry, add color to the paper first. Then, use cotton ear buds and Vaseline to blend and soften the colors. The Vaseline dries after a while, so when using this technique, don't close the coloring book before the Vaseline has dried.

3. Colorful backgrounds with food colors
Use food colors to create colorful backgrounds. Use a combination of food colors thinned down with water, and food colors that have not been thinned down, and allow the colors to flow together. This effect works well for coloring pages with a sea theme.
